Saigu 30 Campaign
Closing Commemorative Service
Almost thirty years ago, Los Angeles was torn and divided by the LA Riots that resulted in over 3,600 fires, 2,300 businesses destroyed, 63 lives lost, and over $1 billion in property damage (40% were incurred by Korean Americans.) SAIGU means 429 or April 29 in Korean, the date the LA Riots broke out. The SAIGU Campaign for the 30th Anniversary of the Los Angeles Riots will revisit the tragic chapter of Los Angeles’ history for the purpose of promoting unity by hosting series of events including closing commemorative service on April 29, 2022.
