For twenty years, Sang Jin Choi also has served homeless people in downtown Washington D.C. He started helping the poor by giving food, clothing, and necessities for them. Through his organization, APPA (Action for Peace through Prayer and Aid), founded in 1996. He has managed many projects with legal aid service, medical clinic service, after-school programs, and church programs for the homeless. There is almost 11,000 homeless people that are in Washington D.C. and 600,000  all around the United States.” He also says that it is not a small amount and that he has many poor people around his neighborhood.  He thinks that we should help and care for them.  

The most impressive thing about his arts is that he used many homeless people's fingerprints and volunteers' fingerprints those who love the homeless, as well as his own fingerprints around the person as their hair and body and also around the city buildings as the sky. Their fingerprints symbolize the engagement and witness of the poor. The grasp and the fingerprints combine to unify a community of love for the poor. -UN JC Gallery
