Brief Background of 80-20:
80-20 has 2 related but independent organizations. They are i) 80-20 Educational Foundation, which is a 501 c-3 org. and ii) a political action committee (PAC). The two components share the same political goal of protecting the rights of AsAms and winning equal opportunity for them in workplaces and in college admissions.
80-20 has 23 years of fighting experience, winning many battles that the "timids" thought impossible. As it fought, it grew stronger, gathering total assets of about $5.5 million, and an email list of 180,000 valid AsAm e-addresses. That is an ability to reach 594,000 AsAms with its weekly e-newsletter, since each e-address, on the average, reaches a family of 3.3 persons.
80-20 is headed by S. B. Woo, former Lieutenant Governor of Delaware (1985-89). He is guided by 80-20’s Board of 6 great Board Members. All officers and Board Members are volunteers and have donated exceptionally generously to 80-20.
80-20 is unique in many ways.It is honest to a fault. It is courageous and dedicated to achieving its mission. It has rich political experience. It has won some and lost some but it always fought on. 80-20 sometimes complains, without naming names,that many AsAm orgs are too timid, spending too much time talking to each other, and issuing press releases which are NOT covered by the media. 80-20 advocates taking actions which help our community.

A) smart & hard working. Woo works day & night, weekends or during vacation time in order to serve the community in a timely & proficient manner;
B) public-service minded as opposed to career-minded;
C) willing to learn and self-motivated (80-20 doesn’t have an office where you’ll be nurtured constantly by some colleagues); and
D) tough. Politics is NOT a field for the weak and easily discouraged.
