Six Feet Apart

COVID-19 is something no one expected and yet has affected all of our lives in an unforgettable way. Our mission at KoreanAmericanStory.Org is to preserve and share stories from the members of our community. Through our new series “SIX FEET APART” we want to capture and share the Korean American stories during this global pandemic.
