Good News for Our Community

(1) Gov. Gary Locke will give the rebuttal on behalf of the Democratic
Party to Pres. Bush's State of the Union address on 1/28. An APA has
never had this honor before!
(2) "USA Today" reported that the minimum length of admission
for B-2 non-immigrants visits would probably be extended to
3 months from the 1 month that was proposed after "9/11"!
Parents of many APA immigrants use this visa to visit their children
and have a lengthy stay in the USA. 80-20 was the organization that
provided you with the e-mail and postal addresses of INS and other
relevant branches of our government so that your voice can be heard in
unison. See our e-mail to YOU of 4/12/02:
http://www.80-20.info/em041202.html . This may be another
demonstration of the importance of having a "group voice."

(3) As 80-20 gains national prestige, its president S. B. Woo is
receiving more invitations to speak at prestigious mainstream
institutions. Just this year, S. B. Woo has been invited to speak at
Wellesley College, alma mater of Mm. Chiang, Kai Shek and Sen.
Hillary Clinton, W. L. Gore & Associates and Dupont
Corporation. In past years, he spoke at Bowdoin, Amherst, Harvard,
Stanford, and Yale to name a few.

Nation's Top Cyber Political Organization

You may recall that 80-20 was rated "one of the nation's two
top cyberspace political organizations in the 2000 election,"
in a book to be published by 3 Syracuse Univ. professors.
This book is now available! One of the authors, Prof. Steve Davis,
is former Washington/World and National News Editor of "USA Today."
To order, visit
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0813340055/qid%3D1025198992/ref%3D=sr%5F11%5F0%5F1/103-1079944-2047015

The book's title is "Click on Democracy: The Power of the Internet to
Change Political Apathy into Action." 80-20 is mentioned in p.25, 114,
156 and pp. 201 to 210. S. B. Woo was invited to write a Foreword for
the book, who used it to tell what motivated the formation of 80-20.
See Foreword: http://www.80-20initiative.net/Click_On_Democracy.html

Three book reviews were written on that book by APA authors.

(1) By Stewart D. Ikeda, Asian-American Village. Visit:
http://www.imdiversity.com/villages/asian/article_detail.asp?Article_ID=13494

(2) By D. M. Chien and is in Chinese; pp. 18 to 19 "Sino-Monthly,"
Nov., 2002. Visit: http://www.80-20.info/SinoMonthly1.html

(3) By Dr. Tzy C. Peng who gave a detailed review in "Chinese
American Forum," pp. 34 to 36, Oct. 2002. To order a copy, please
e-mail cafpeng@charter.net.

What does being rated as one of Nation's two top cyber political
org. mean?

Many things. One thing for sure: it showed how hard the
volunteers at 80-20 have worked for YOU and YOUR children.
Please do YOUR share.
