Alice S. Huang, former AAAS Pres. & Chair: Why I . . .

                              About the Author
Alice S. Huang
        Past AAAS Pres. & Chair; AAAS (Am. Assoc. for the Advancement of Science) is the world's largest non-government science org. which publishes the prestigious SCIENCE magazine; board member of The Rockefeller Foundation, Waksman Foundation for Microbiology, & Public Agenda; member of the Academia Sinica, Taiwan; retired professor from Harvard Medical School; retired Dean for Science at New York University; and a member of the Division of Biology at the California Institute of Technology.


    SUBJECT: Why I support 80-20 & why you should, too

   I joined 80-20 because it is totally different from other Asian American organizations. It focuses on politics. Its Political Action Committee (PAC) aggressively channels our votes into effective strategies and its Educational Foundation (EF) is trying hard to educate each of us on the issues and drivers of the American political process. 80-20 EF also educates current government agencies and leaders in the United States on the problems that prevent Asian Americans from fully contributing our talents. We are particularly needed now as global competition increases.

   Only by becoming full participating members of this country will we guarantee a fulfilling future for ourselves, our children, and our adopted country.

   Please join me in helping to make 80-20 more effective by giving to the Self Empowerment Long-term Fund (SELF). To donate, click here.

   Only by working together, can we make a difference.
