The organization voiced their support of Rep. Marin’s campaign because of his reputation for speaking out on behalf of immigrant families and minorities. He is one of the first Latinos to be elected to the Georgia General Assembly.
“Representative Marin’s opposing candidate will continue to propose and pass immigration laws in Georgia. Korean Americans, all immigrants and all minorities need a representative who will stand up for our rights,” said the "Korean Americans for Pedro Marin" organization in its press release.
Marin, a business consultant, is a member of the following committees: Banks and Banking, Economic Development & Tourism, and Industrial Relations. His biography states that he has focused on stopping gang violence and racial profiling, expanding translation services, and fighting against legislation targeting specific communities.
Bonnie Youn will host the event. Rep. Marin will be available to speak during and after the fundraiser. For more information, contact Erin C. Kadzis, House Democratic Caucus, (404) 933 - 5100, firstname.lastname@example.org.
