YOU have been on our email list for a long time! By now,
you know what kind of organization 80-20 is. Chances are
you think 80-20 tries hard, but has NOT served you perfectly.
If that is the case, may I urge you to join as a member?
Get involved. I know that you are not apathetic or a freeloader. 80-
20 is the ONLY Asian American organization that fights for you in the
political arena, bravely and effectively. No organization is to anyone's
perfect liking, when one has watched its actions for a long time.
Of the millions of Asian Americans only 1900 were willing to pay
$35/$50 to help build Asian American political clout. Isn't that a
Why political clout? To break the glass ceiling in your workplaces; to
lower the higher admission bar for your offspring; and to get more
AsAm Federal judges appointed, currently totaling 0.7% of the nation
while our population is 4.4% !!!
Many in the mainstream community view Asian Americans as self-
centered, no civic spirit and timid, only texture-less math nerds
gathering money. 80-20 needs your help to break that negative
stereotype image against us, and to fight our way to become equal
citizens of America.
80-20 has and will do things for you and your children that you
yourself can not possibly do AS AN INDIVIDUAL. But united in 80-20, we
can together do even more. Does $50 mean that much to you? See
"80-20's Proud Record Of Service This Year," attached at the end.

80-20's RECORD OF SERVICE
What 80-20 has done for our community in the last 6 months:
1) On 6/11/06 Full page ads in Korean, Indian, Filipino, Vietnamese,
Japanese and Chinese newspapers. Message? Asian Americans unite to
shatter the glass ceiling above us.
2) On 9/6/06 Full page ad in the Washington Post to call America's
attention to the unequal opportunity suffered by us.
3) On 9/21/06 U.S. Senator Tom Carper read YOUR Washington Post ad
into the Congressional Record and asked other Senators to note it.
4) On 10/23/06 Governor Howard Dean, Chairman of the Democratic
Party wrote 80-20 President, S. B. Woo, promising concrete and specific
help in our battle to win equal opportunity in workplaces -- a historic
5) On 10/24/06 In return to the above commitment, 80-20 urged Asian
Ams to vote for Democrats in all Congressional races with 2 exceptions.
6) On 11/7/06 80-20 showed that Asian Ams' bloc vote can help win
tight and crucial elections. AsAams helped Democrats win not only the
House but also the Senate leadership. 2 of 4 tough races, focused by
80-20, were victorious. Without the AsAm bloc vote, Democrats
could not possibiliy have won the Senate race in Virginia!
Through the above series of events, 80-20 demonstrated dedication
and deep political knowledge and skills using them to advance rightful
concerns of AsAms. See 80-20's "Prediction of Election Results"
below that was published 4 days BEFORE the election:
"85% chance that the Democrats will win the U.S. House.
60% chance that the Democrats will win at least a 50-50 split in the Senate.
80% chance that 80-20 will help win at least 3 of the 4 TOUGH races it
has focused on. 80-20 also urged its two chapters in Missouri to
help the McCaskill Senate campaign. (Democrats won that close senate
race. ) Hence, even the 1.1% Asian Am. population can make a difference
through a bloc vote."
7) On MM/DD/YY Congressional HEARING on the powerful statistics
gathered by 80-20 showing that Asian Americans have faced the LOWEST
glass ceiling in the nation. The House/Senate Labor Comm. recommended …
(some kind of action to provide relief for Asian Ams.)
Does the above excite your imagination?
