On February 22nd, the MinKwon Center held a Chinese American Planning Council (CPC). This clinic was made possible with volunteers from CPC, Korean Community Services (KCS), and various law schools as well as support from the New York State Office of New Americans, helping MinKwon in its outreach to the Asian American immigrant community. At this clinic, about dozen community members received legal consultation and naturalization application assistance.
MinKwon and its partner organizations plan to hold more clinics in the near future in Flushing, New Jersey, and Long Island.
