forum event on korean hostages in afghanistan

I know a lot of people have been following the South Korean hostage situation in Afghanistan with deep concern, while for the most part feeling pretty helpless. For those of you in Los Angeles, I received this email today with information on a last minute forum event happening in Koreatown on Thursday night:
Another life lost, needlessly. On Monday, a second South Korean hostage in Afghanistan was killed, joining Bae Hyung-Kyu, the leader of the 23 members of an aid group who were kidnapped two weeks ago by the Taliban, as another casualty in a war that has claimed the lives of so many innocents.

The turmoil that may appear so distant and far removed from our own lives, in places like Afghanistan and Iraq, does indeed impact us. You may have asked yourself, "What can I do to help?"

We have decided to act now. Come be educated on the state of affairs in Afghanistan.

When : Thursday, August 2nd at 6:30 - 8:00 pm

Where : The Korean Education Center located at 680 Wilshire Place, Los Angeles, CA 90005 (located next to Southwestern Law School parking lot.)

Guest Speakers from the Afghanistan Consulate General Office and the Korean American Coalition.

There will be an informal after-event at The Prince restaurant (un-hosted).
