Year of the Blue Horse: Korean American Day Celebration
ITTA partners with KAAC Cook County Government for Celebration Dinner
As you may know, The Korean American community is most proud to celebrate progress from the first steps here in 1903 with 102 Korean immigrants arriving in America until today with over 2 million within the United States nationally and over 52,000 locally. Korea itself first established diplomatic relations with the US in 1882 as the Kingdom of Chosun (Korea) and official US recognition to the Republic of Korea was made in 1949.
This event has been celebrated for over 31 years and the Korean American community was met with strong support from Cook County government agencies and local law enforcement members. This relationship is highly valued and of the utmost importance to the Korean American community here in Illinois and the greater Chicagoland area.
