As all Hwarang members strive to be community leaders, being politically intelligent and involved is also an essential asset. Therefore, in recent years, we have assisted with phone banking campaigns for a variety of political figures such as David Ryu and Joe Biden. Through this experience, members are able to contact citizens in the region, spreading awareness about candidates’ policies and future goals. In the form of shifts, members volunteered for two hour periods every week leading up to the elections. During this time, they gained a finer understanding of the community in which they resided in and a better sense of their political audience.
