KALAGNY Opposes the President's Travel Ban Executive Order

The Korean American Lawyers Association of Greater New York (KALAGNY) opposes President Donald Trump's January 27, 2017 Executive Order. The Executive Order bans individuals from seven Muslim-majority countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen) from traveling to the United States and halts the issuance of visas from those seven countries.  

KALAGNY thanks the immigration bar and non-profit organizations, which have responded quickly and worked tirelessly to provide solutions through our justice system in the wake of the executive order.  KALAGNY urges its membership to provide assistance to the immigration bar and to the affected individuals through various means, including through legal assistance and public discourse.   Click here to read more.

Honoring the Survivors: Korea and Japan Settle Dispute Over Comfort Women Issue


                        The Glendale Comfort Women Peace Monument

Korea and Japan have resolved their dispute over the "Comfort Women" issue.   As part of the resolution, Japan offered a public apology and a one-billion yen ($8.3 million) compensation to Korean women who were forced to work in Japanese brothels during WWII. 

KALAGNY has played an integral part in the ongoing open discussion about this atrocity faced by the "Comfort Women." We hope to educate our members and our community  so as to prevent any like incidents from arising in the future.
