Harvard Targeted in US Asian-American Discrimination Probe

"Harvard Targeted in US Asian-American Discrimination Probe"

Dear Fellow Asian Americans:

80-20 WORKED with Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Daniel Golden to voice Asian American concerns in the national news media. Please read this just published Businessweek article .

Asian Americans face a much higher college admission bar than people from any other ethnic groups, yet most of us just resign to our fate or force our children to work even harder. Do you know there is another way? Unite and use our group clout to influence and change the system.

You may recall 80-20 voted in Dec. 2011 to enter this battle for equal opportunity, using the pending Supreme Court case of "Fisher v. Univ. of Texas at Austin" as a vehicle to advocate a race-neutral, merit-based college admission policy.

We don't just sit around waiting for the Supreme Court to do something. We are actively working to gather pertinent data, establish the factual basis of Asian American opinions, and supply time-sensitive information to the news media. We choose to get involved in this and other issues, not because they are easy, but because they are hard. So hard that no elected Asian American official or other national Asian American organization dares to tackle, yet so much is at stake in your and your children's future.

The power of 80-20 rests in You.

WE together had just delivered 80-20 the DOUBLE-or-Die miracle. By Dec 31, 2011, 80-20 added 2095 more members in 9 months. Join this growing national movement to build-up our group clout, and make our voices heard loud and clear again in tough battles to come. JOIN 80-20!
