JOIN NOW. YOU AND 80-20 NEED EACH OTHER.
HERE IS WHY.
(1) 80-20 Protects You From Being Discriminated:
On 5/10/2003, at the height of SARS scares, 5 Asian Am.
teachers were turned away by 2 NJ schools from fulfilling their
CONTRACTUAL obligations. Imagine if you are told to go home
from your work, because people of Asian descent are the prime
suspects owing to the SARS hysteria. Such a precedent must
NOT be allowed.
80-20 NEGOTIATED on the phone (not just writing a letter)
with the school superintendent to get 1) a public apology, 2) back
pay, 3) reinstitution of the program, and 4) a school district-wide
educational program to combat SARS hysteria.
(2) 80-20 Opens Your Path To Equal Opportunity:
All viable Democratic presidential candidates pledged in writing
that upon being the president they will enforce E.O. 11246 to
provide equal opportunity in workplaces for Asian Americans.
Currently it is enforced for all other Americans except us.
80-20 is confident that President Bush will soon sign it too.
At least, the National Chairman of AAPI for Bush/Cheney 2004,
John Tsu, agreed, as was reported in the 1/17/04 issue of The
In ten years, the number of APA Exec/Administrators is
estimated to increase by a factor of 3. The glass-ceiling
shall be shattered!
(3) 80-20 Protects Your Personal Dignity:
The N-gger word is no longer used against blacks. Words like
Chinaman, Jap & Chink will not be used against you with
impunity so long as 80-20 is around. 80-20 has the leadership to
protect your dignity effectively, while turning those who had
used those words inadvertently into friends.
You have yearned for a powerful APA organization to stand up for
you. You've got it in 80-20, although our mission is not yet
accomplished. NOW PLEASE PUT YOUR SHOULDERS BEHIND
80-20 AND PUSH! Do YOUR share.
