Why this petition matters

Started by SALLEY KIM

This is a fine opportunity to honor a kind Korean American, Anchorage business owner name Ms. Baik. She has served the community of Mountain View for decades. She showed support to her community by serving food in Mountain View every year even when her business got robbed. She selflessly prepared meals on thanksgiving  to warm the hearts of her less fortunate neighbors. Let’s make a change and show some support to our woman who is a brave Korean American Woman business owner. At a crazy time like this, hate crimes are rampant against Asian women and elders, I hope Anchorage is starting to be progessive and be an example to make a change in hate crimes. Many Asian women in Atlanta and New York who died and were victims of hate crimes. Honoring Mrs. Baik is a first step to demonstrating the contribution to our community to stand against hate crimes against Asian American.

From David Song, Office of Representative Geran Tarr:

"My name is David Song (송명근), and I am a staffer for Representative Geran Tarr in the Alaska State House.

Our office, along with Senator Tom Begich, is introducing legislation that would name a bridge in Mountain View for Insook Baik, the owner of the Mountain View Shell station. We know she has organized the free Thanksgiving meal drive for years, and we wanted to recognize her generosity with this bridge naming.

As a Korean-American, I think that this legislation would be a great way not to honor a community member in Mountain View, but also to highlight the contributions of the Korean community in Alaska. Therefore, I would like to ask KACA to support HB 357 by sending in a letter of support, and potentially testifying in support of this bill in future hearings!

Here is the link to HB 357: http://www.akleg.gov/PDF/32/Bills/HB0357A.PDF
Here is the bridge information and location: https://bridgereports.com/1001051

Please let me know if this is something that KACA would like to support, or if you have any questions or comments.

Best,
David Song

안녕하세요! 


알라스카 하원의원 Geran Tarr 의 보좌관인 송명근 (David Song) 으로부터 온 서신의 내용을 아래에 공유합니다. 부디 도와 주시면 대단히 감사하겠습니다. 

한인회에서 작성한 두가지 양식의 탄원서를 첨부합니다. 하나는 개인이 서명할 경우, 또 다른 하나는 여러명이 서명할 경우 사용하시면 됩니다.

첨부한 탄원서에 이름과 서명을 하여 저희 한인회로 보내 주시면 송명근님께 전달하겠습니다. 내용을 이메일로 보내주시면 더 좋습니다.  David.song@akleg.gov 아니면 admin@koreanak.com

마감일은 3월 9일입니다. 그 다음날인 3월 10일에 청문회가 열리니, 서명한 청원서가 늦어도 3월 9일까지 송명근님에게 전달되어야 합니다.

"제 이름은 David Song (송명근)이고 알래스카주 하원의 Geran Tarr 직원입니다.

우리 사무실은 Tom Begich 상원의원과 함께 Mountain View Shell 주유소의 주인인 백인숙을 위해 Mountain View의 다리 이름을 지정하는 법안을 발의하고 있습니다. 우리는 그녀가 수년간 무료 추수 감사절 식사 드라이브를 조직했다는 것을 알고 있으며 이 다리 이름으로 그녀의 관대함을 인정하고 싶었습니다.

 

한인으로서 이 법안은 마운틴뷰의 커뮤니티 회원을 기리는 것보다 알래스카 한인 커뮤니티의 공헌을 강조하는 좋은 방법과 기회가 될 것이라고 생각합니다. 따라서 저는 한인회 모든 구성원들께서 지원 서한을 보내 HB 357을 지원하고 향후 청문회에서 이 법안을 지지할 가치가 있다고 증언하도록 요청하고 싶습니다!
지원하고자 하는 사항이나 질문이나 의견이 있으시면 알려주시기 바랍니다.
