Pres. Obama has just nominated 2 more Asian Am. Federal District Judges, totaling 3 just this year. The new nominees are Edward Chen of Northern CA, and Dolly Gee of Central CA.
The significance of the news is NOT just in having 2 more Asian Am. federal judges. It is the worth of Pres. Obama's promises to YOU through 80-20! (see his reply to 80-20's questionnaire.) We thank Pres. Obama again. We also thank Sen. Feinstein, who as the Senior Democratic Senator of CA, submitted the names to Pres. Obama.
Look at the Table below. Witness the effectiveness of 80-20. "NAPABA," seen in row 2 of the Table, stands for National Asian Pacific American Bar Association.
When 80-20 sets out to increase the number of Asian Am. judges, there were only 6. See the 4th row form the bottom of the Table. Now the number has increased 83% to 11. The number [8 + (0)] in the last row, should now be changed to [11 + (0)]. 80-20 also has a feeling that the (0), meaning having NOT a single Asian Am. Appeals Court judge, will soon change also.
80-20 fought for YOU, and won commitments for YOU. The commitments are now being fulfilled by Pres. Obama.
If not now, when will you join 80-20 as a dues-paying member? Using a credit card, go http://www.80-20initiative.net. Or send a check to 80-20 PAC, PO Box 22509, Philadelphia, PA 19110 . We need NEW members -- YOU!
We need your help to get us a RECORD membership, because one important commitment by Pres. Obama is yet to be fulfilled -- the enforcement of E.O. 11246 in workplaces for ALL ASIAN AMERICANS. We aim to win for YOU "equal pay for equal work," and equal opportunity to rise to as high a level as your ability and ambition will take you! YOU need to help 80-20 achieve that.
The fulfillment of that promise POSITIVELY impacts ALL Asian Americans.
"Success has a thousand fathers." We gratefully thank all Asian Am. orgs. which have worked on this issue, including NAPABA and AAJC.
