Boston Korean Adoptees, Inc. is a Boston/Boston-Metro organization committed to building a community of Adult Adoptees and others in New England area. We host, sponsor and collaborate on a variety of different events and programming, from panels and workshops to cultural events to casual get-togethers. Our primary goal is to provide a safe space and forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences of our members and the greater community.
COVID-19 update: In the interest of public health, BKA is currently suspending/postponing all in-person programs and events. We are monitoring the situation and are currently looking into ways we can continue to support our members and the local KAD community remotely/online. Please, everyone -- be safe, wash your hands, and stay tuned.
(To follow along with us on social media, please find us on Facebook and Instagram)--
In this period of social distancing, there are many ways we can still come together as a community. Consider:
-Buying gift cards to local restaurants and businesses. Be especially considerate of businesses that may have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19, such as Chinese/Asian businesses affected by increased anti-Asian sentiment, restaurants that have traditionally been operated on a dine-in-only model, etc.
-Making a donation to your local food pantry (Greater boston food bank: https://www.gbfb.org/covid-19-update/)
-Supporting your local artists, creators and makers (who may be facing a sudden reduction or even lack of work):
Boston Artists Relief Fund
Cambridge Artists Relief Fund
-Participating in mutual/community aid efforts (check out online communities, including city/town-specific groups, college and school alumnae organizations, affinity groups, etc.) to offer direct help to others in your community.
Also, please take care of yourself and your loved ones!
