Korean Americans Celebrated the Amerasian Act's 30th Anniversary
The Hanmi Amerasians Association of the USA celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the Amerasian Act at their Annual Social and Networking Gathering on July 4, 2010. Korean-Amerasians from across the country gathered in in Maryland for this day-long event.

Who are Amerasians? During the Korean and Vietnam wars, millions of American soldiers were stationed at military bases in Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand. When the wars ended and the U.S. troops departed, many Amerasian children were left behind. Most of them faced racism and discrimination during their early years.

What is the Amerasian Act? Public Law 97-359 (Act of 10/22/82) provides for the immigration to the United States of certain Amerasian children. In order to qualify for benefits under this law, an alien must have been born in Cambodia, Korea, Laos, Thailand, or Vietnam after December 31, 1950, and before October 22, 1982, and have been fathered by a U.S. citizen.

What is Hanmi Amerasians Association? We are a fellowship of Korean Amerasians living in the United States.

We are proud to be Americans, and we are grateful to all Americans for allowing us to come to our fathers' homeland. And we are proud of our Korean heritage.

We have left behind a legacy of discrimination, and are working together to provide a better life for us and for our children. We encourage inter-personal relationships and social networking among our members. We speak English and Korean - come join us - find friends and work towards a better life together.
