On July 4th, Asian Pacific Americans may want to
o Count the Blessings of Liberty We've Enjoyed as Citizens &
Permanent Residents of USA:
For instance, so many of us recently sent messages to our
presidential candidates, including President Bush himself,
that unless each pledges to help us win equal opportunity
in workplaces, we would not support his/her candidacies in
the coming election. Most candidates responded not only
affirmatively but also speedily. Where else is a land so free?
o Show Appreciation for Our Great Nation & at the Same
Time Help Erase Our Image as "Perpetual Foreigners":
Hoist a flag! Visit

Cantonese) in SF, LA & NY, at a cost of $15K to 80-20.
Contact ethnic radio stations in your locality which
May want to air the radio ads as a public service. The
ads can be downloaded electronically, free of charge,
4) find out how 80-20's flag project is helping to
erase our foreigners' image. See "media coverage," &
5) Organize a Sea of Flags activity in your locality

It takes images (sea of flags) to create a positive &
patriotic image for us.
What if, it were known across America that there were always MORE flags hoisted in Koreatown/Chinatown/Little Saigon/Japantown/etc. on Independence, Memorial, and Veteran Days? Will most of our compatriots still think of us as foreigners? No way!
Can we turn this vision into reality? Yes, if YOU do your share!
