You are cordially invited to the grand opening celebration of our most recent affordable housing development, Durae Senior Apartments, formerly LDK Senior Apartments. “Durae” is a Korean word that roughly describes the ancient agrarian practice of community barn-raising. The spirit of helping one another is apt for Durae Senior Apartments, where it took a village to build this affordable housing complex for seniors.
The opening of the two new affordable senior housing buildings represents a hard fought victory resulting from over a decade of organizing and advocacy by the Korean Resource Center (KRC) and its senior organizing group, the Community Health Promoters (CHP). CHP members are informed, low-income Korean American senior activists who have led and won major campaigns for language access, immigrant rights, health care, state funding for health and human services, redistricting, and now, the Durae senior homes. Please join us on Friday, September 9th, 2016 to recognize the many partners and individuals who made Durae Senior Apartments possible. Please plan to park on the street and carpool as much as possible. Coffee will be available before the program begins at 9:30 am. Food, refreshments and tours of the property will be provided to guests after the program.
