With profound respect and love for the Korean adoptee, their family of origin and their adoptive family, Sejong Camp was created by Lindy Gelber and Linda Priore in direct response to the LA riots, to empower and acknowledge Korean and Korean American heritage and connection.The mission of Sejong was and is to provide a meaningful connection to, and a sense of pride in, the adopted person's birth heritage with an understanding of how that cultural ribbon weaves into the tapestry that is their life in the United States.
