80-20 is a national, nonpartisan, Political Action Committee dedicated to winning equal opportunity and justice for all Asian Americans
Giving Back to Society & Building Our Own Community
December is a month when most well-established professionals, as well as those who recently found new or better jobs, think of giving back something to the society that has given us so much. This is even more true of us, the Asian Americans, the recent immigrants, because we are the New Americans and this society has given us so much, no doubt.
Some of us who came to these shores decades ago, have realized our American Dream. However, there are also many who found that although we do have jobs and are paid well, we never achieved the potential we had due to the invisible glass ceiling all around us. Similarly, many of our children got admissions to Harvard, Yale, Stanford or Princeton, but we also know that many of our well deserving students have been denied admission to the Ivies, while less qualified students have been admitted instead.
The reason: While Asian Americans are called a model minority due to our hard work ethic and success in education, professions and business, we are not a model minority when it comes to participating in democracy or giving back to the society. We lack in these matters.
So, if you want to do your part, and give back to a cause that would improve the system of justice for everyone and by doing so, improve the system of fairness and justice for all Asian Americans, look no further. 80-20 is that organization. It's politically astute and working hard to achieve equality for all Asian Americans.
Please help 80-20 to help yourself, your children, your grandchildren, and future generations to come - by making a level playing field for all Asian Americans in this country.
What 80-20 does for you and yours, takes a lot of effort. Getting the political establishment and the media to pay attention to Asian American issues is not easy. But we have turned the corner. This year we have received a lot of good press, exposing the Asian American students’ plight, and exposing the duplicity of Harvard, Princeton, and other Ivies.
But change does not happen in a year or two. It requires sustained effort for the long haul.
