On May 9th, 2024, the Korean Community Services of New York (KCS) proudly supported and participated in the inaugural NYS AAPI Summit in Albany. This pivotal gathering saw representatives from KCS’s Education Department and Mental Health Clinic, including esteemed panelists Teresa Baik and Yuna Youn. They powerfully represented the Korean community, advocating for crucial mental health services for Asian youth and emphasizing the need for spaces dedicated to racial healing, grounded in real-life community experiences.
