Korean Group encourages broader idea of community

Lisa Biagiotti, via the blog 'Junction Boulevard,'reports that the Korean American Empowerment Council, a non-profit organization, "encourages Koreans to take interest in their surrounding community" and the "Korean American Association awards 20 scholarships to students of any ethnicity at Newtown High School in Elmhurst."

John Park, 56, of Jackson Heights and president of the Korean American Empowerment Council says "We need strong friends, we have to grow up together... I try to make [Koreans] ask, expand, [and] be open."
