Suing DOL/Be An Undecided/Big War Chest/ Delegates

1) Filing A Law Suit Against The Department of Labor, DOL:

80-20 is actively preparing to sue The Department of Labor for non-enforcement of Exec. Order 11246 on behalf of AsAms. EO 11246 is a comprehensive and powerful law that broke the glass ceilings for other minorities including the blacks, the women and the Hispanics. It was never enforced for AsAm. See

Such a suit has a legal precedent. The 9th Circuit court, the second highest level of courts of the land, ruled on 12/4/1979 in favor of an almost identical case. The Legal Aid Society of Alameda County filed a suit against then Labor Secretary Peter Brennan for non-enforce of EO 11246 in a number of agricultural companies. The Secretary was ordered by the court to enforce the law, and the federal contracts held by offending companies were terminated. For those of you with law training, see 608 F.2d 1319, West Law.

Feel free to contact 80-20, if your law firm is interested in representing 80-20, or your organization is interested in joining 80-20 in filing such a law suit. Email S. B. Woo: .


(2) How YOU personally may Improve AsAm Political Clout

When polled about which presidential candidate YOU are supporting,, please say “UNDECIDED” before 80-20's endorsement is known. Soon pollsters will tell Bush, Kerry and Nader campaigns that there are a lot of UNDECIDED AsAms voters. Soon, these campaigns will court us with urgency.

Only 5% of the nation's voters are still UNDECIDED today. If all of the AsAms voters, representing 2.5% of the nations’ voter, are UNDECIDED, then AsAms will represent 50% of the remaining UNDECIDED voters. Can you image how much both parties will be willing to do to get our vote?

Be UNDECIDED, until 80-20 endorses! You hold your line, and collectively we'll get our EQUAL OPPORTUNITY IN WORKPLACES.
