Call to Action: Stop SCA5 first then...


(1) An Immediate Concern:
Stop SCA 5 (Senate Constitutional Amendment 5*) from passing the CA
Assembly where there are 8 Asian Am Assembly members. If it passes the
Assembly and also subsequently passes a state wide Referendum,
its net
result will be to make state college admission for qualified Asian Am
students more difficult so that other less qualified students will be
As damaging and unfair as SCA 5 is to Asian American college
applicants, 3 Chinese Am CA state senators actually voted for it.

(2) A Long-term Concern & EMPOWERMENT:
The Asian Am community has always been plagued by elected Asian Am
who want our money to help them run for offices but seemingly
are unwilling to represent our rightful interests.
The 3 Ch-Am senators
voting for SCA 5 is one example. This may be the best occasion for us to
send a strong signal to ALL elected and appointed AsAm officials that
we'll not permit them to abuse us any more. They must have backbones.
Or, 80-20 shall work with all of you NATIONALLY to UN-elect an elected
Asian Am official to set an example.

   Making sure that elected politicians in your district are accountable
to YOU is A MUST for the 16 million AsAms. 80-20 shall try hard
to deliver that EMPOWERMENT to you, provided that YOU DO YOUR SHARE!
ALL, whether you reside in CA or not, should participate.

   The table below shows the names of all CA AsAm officials who have
a role in SCA 5. If two of the AsAm Assembly members will just abstain or
vote against SCA 5, the motion will fail -- our youngsters' equal
opportunity to enter any CA state college will be assured.

   Demand! Demand that they serve your interests!

   In order of effectiveness: phone call, fax and email. Most elected
officials discount emails quite a bit, because it is so easy to send. We
respectfully suggest that you at least make one phone call or sent one fax
to an Assembly member/senator in your district.

   After SCA 5 has been stopped, we'll discuss what appropriate amends
that the 3 CA senators must make to the AsAms in their respective
senatorial districts. Otherwise, we'll organize to UN-elect the unrepentant.

   Please phone or fax NOW! Don't forget to send your email to all the
11 elected officials. Don't compose. Just state:

   "Please abstain or vote "NO" on SCA 5. Otherwise, no more votes &/or
donations from me and all my relatives & friends nationwide.
Give your
name & zip code."

   Do it NOW! Also forward this "Call To Action" to friends.
Copy me in your fax/email, if you like. Thanks.

Respectfully yours,

* SCA5 was authored by Hispanic Sen. Ed Hernandez. It passed the CA
Senate on Jan. 30, 2014. It proposed "an amendment to the Constitution of
the State to undo the work of Proposition 209 for Californian's state
colleges and universities." The CA Political News calls it "The Jew and
Asian California University Quota Limitation Act." You got the idea.
Anger is spreading like wildfire.
See this petition, entitled "Vote
No To SCA 5", which has 28,000+ signers in 5 days. Many orgs. have formed
in CA with the explicit purpose of defeating SCA 5. Google them.
