Lawrence Bacow is the son of an immigrant, a lawyer and an economist . . . . We wish him all success including terminating the discrimination against Asian American applicants. Please click here to read a NYT article about this appointment.
Our Fight to Win Equal Opportunity
for AsAm Children Is Progressing
The article is only 12 short paragraphs. However, 1.5 paragraphs were devoted to an issue that the Asian American community had focused on:
" The university is facing a number of immediate
challenges. . . . . ."
" Harvard is also facing an investigation by the Justice
Department into its affirmative action policies and whether
they discriminate against Asian-American applicants, as
well as a lawsuit making the same claims in federal court
All who have
donated to 80-20 EF's SELF project, and/or signed its petition, and/or joined 80-20 PAC as members, and/or
forwarded 80-20's emails to friends and relatives
can be VERY PROUD of your contribution to create the awareness to get the NYT to cover this possible fault of Harvard at the announcement of its new president. It's an impressive achievement!
We also like to acknowledge the the great contribution of Students for Fair Admission (SFFA) led by Mr. Ed Blum, and Asian Am. Coalition of Educational (AACE) which brought the charge against Harvard via DOJ and DOE.
You may recall that that AsAm community is mounting a 3-pronged attackagainst Harvard's discrimination against AsAm applicants. Mr. Blum heads the legal fight through the Judicial Branch of our government. AACE filed complaints with the Administrative Branch. 80-20 fights the battle against Harvard through the Court of Public Opinion.
We are winning in the Court of Public Opinion. The battles in the other two fronts are also going well.
Be Proud! You've all contributed to this critical battle to eliminate inequity in education.
