SELF-HELP: Protecting Our College Students
Fear of Coronavirus caused a high school in NY to request Chinese students to stay home and not attend school. 80-20 sprang into action. To prevent such infringement of our rights from spreading to colleges, EF used your money to buy full-page ads at the campus papers of UC Berkeley on 2/13, Princeton on 2/21, UCLA on 2/24 and UC Riverside on 2/25.
The ad basically advises students to contact their college's Administration first, if they encounter discrimination against them on their campus. If they need more help, then contact 80-20 EF. To see the Princeton Ad which is the same as the others, click here.
Forward this message to your relatives in colleges. Let them know that 80-20 has their backs.
Help from the Jewish Community
The following letter came from the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, JCPA. It was co-signed by more than 70 other Jewish orgs. Excerpts are shown below. Click here to see the entire letter.
"... express our heartfelt solidarity with you .... rising xenophobia
aimed at Chinese people in this country and abroad ... concern
can quickly turn into hysteria, which can lead to scapegoating.
We pledge to help ensure that Chinese people feel safe .. ....."
80-20 appreciates this heartfelt sympathetic message. I called JCPA's president and CEO, Mike Bernstein, to thank him. He called me back to request spreading the news of "solidarity" through 80-20's email list. To show powerful support for this solidarity, please sign this petition. Do your share pls.
SELF-EMPOWERMENT - the most reliable HELP
80-20 SuperPAC continue to request that YOU
Don't vote for politicians who don't share our concerns.
Vote for Sen. Klobuchar who is the only one who does.
Be smart and be tough.
What if the exit polls on 3/3 find that most AsAms voted for Sen. Amy Klobuchar in CA & other states*, although she is hardly campaigning in CA & other big states? Wouldn't that pass a fantastically powerful message to politicians that they NEED to share our concerns so that we can help them win elections?
FORWARD 80-20's e-newsletters between now and 3/3, which is the Super Tuesday to ALL your AsAms friends! Then and only then will this message saturate our community to enable our self-empowerment. IT IS SO EASY TO DO, WHILE ITS RESULT WILL BE SO POWERFUL. COUNTING ON YOU!
