Our real battle begins!

Because of you, Obama won & we are a giant step closer to enjoying equal opportunity.

However, YOUR battle to win equal opportunity for YOU & YOUR children does NOT end with Obama's victory. It begins!

Q1 in 80-20's questionnaire to presidential candidates Obama & Biden is:

"If elected, will you direct the Labor Secretary to hold public hearings regarding the validity of the huge amount of statistical data strongly suggesting discriminatory practices against Asian Americans in workplaces today?" *

"YES," answered our President- & Vice President-elect.

Rise, therefore, Asian Americans! We need to get ready for those public hearings! We need superb witnesses to testify before the hearings.

We already have

a US Senator,
a Congressperson,
a Former Dean of a Law School,
a scientist, and
a labor expert with EEOC experience

on our list of witnesses.

We need more, however. Again, we come to YOU for help.

If YOU know Asian Am. witnesses who have won court cases involving the glass ceiling, please let me know . Those individuals know first hand how painful it was to be denied the opportunity to live to the maximum of their ambition and ability. They also know how punishing the court procedure was in suing against an American company.

Now these same individuals can be our community's heroes and e. Working with 80-20, they can relieve the 14 million Asian Ams. of that kind of pain & suffering, while making America a "more perfect Union."

A year ago, did we think Obama could beat Clinton and the become then first black US president?

If Obama can win, we can be equal citizens of the USA. All we need to do is "To sustain, plan well & be DOERS!"

If you have time, please give time. If you have money, DONATE. Go Donation to 80-20 Educational Foundation is tax deductible.

Because of you,
we will win the next battle -- "the battle of the public hearings."

Respectfully yours,

S. B. Woo

* If you are wondering what happens AFTER we've won the "battle of the public hearings," please read questions 2 and 3:

Q2: If the data were shown valid, will you issue a directive to the Labor Department asking it to focus on enforcing Executive Order 11246 on behalf of Asian Americans, since in the past similar efforts have already been made on behalf of women and other minorities?

In other words, if and when we win the "battle of the public hearings," we'll finally get to enjoy the protection of the law that all other Americans have already enjoyed. Now do you believe that YOU have been and are still second class citizens until we win this battle?

Q3: Two years after you have issued the directive described in Q2, will you meet with a group of Asian American national organizations, put together by 80-20 and the Labor Department, to review the progress in extending equal opportunity to Asian Americans?

In other words, 80-20, being utterly dedicated to winning equal opportunity for you, has gained President Obama's promise to review the progress together. This review will provide the pressure for due progress.
