Thanks to you, 5 months into the year, 80-20 already has a larger membership than ITS ENTIRE 2007 roster. Indeed, our current membership is a 5-month record for the historic high. At this rate, we'll double our membership of 2007.
Implication? First, Asian Ams now have more confidence in 80-20, after seeing what it got done through the 2008 election. Secondly, political awakening! Less and less Asian Ams are like the selfish characters in the humiliating joke entitled "Barber and Asian Ams."
You have emboldened 80-20 to set 2 more goals for this month. First, a historic 6-month membership record; & secondly, to have more members by June 30th of 2009 than its ENTIRE 2008 roster!
Why are these aims important to you?
Political clout comes from the ability to deliver as large a swing bloc vote as possible. In the next election, 80-20 may finally be able to deliver 80% of the Asian Am vote to its endorsed candidate - 80-20's name sake. This big increase in membership in a weak economy therefore means "More Power To YOU!"
Once we get there, we'll get sufficient political support to make YOU & YOUR CHILDREN "Equal Citizens NOW."
Dare you dream with us for our children's sake?
With those goals, we need even more members. Using a credit card, go http://www.80-20initiative.net and click on the red button "JOIN 80-20." Or, send a check to 80-20 PAC, PO Box 22509, Philadelphia, PA 19110.
We particularly need NEW members!!!! The membership fee is $15 for students, $35 for s or $50 for a family of 2 members. Act! Citizens & permanent residents may join. Does one need to be "famous or prominent" to join? No! That was a vicious rumor. 80-20 is grass-roots!
