WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall joined his colleagues in introducing the Korean American Day Resolution, which honors the arrival of the first Korean immigrants to the United States on January 13, 1903.

“This year marks the 116th anniversary of those brave first Korean immigrants. Gwinnett and Forsyth counties are home to over 25,000 Korean Americans, which is nearly half of the entire Korean American population of Georgia,” said Congressman Woodall. “Our community is made richer by our Korean American friends and neighbors. It has been an honor and a privilege to partner with one of the largest and most vibrant Korean American districts in the nation.”

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes significant portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties. He currently serves on the Rules Committee as well as the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee.
