(1) College Admissions
Look at the progress!
Harvard Gazette: "The Class of 2025 reflects the increasing diversity of the College’s applicants, with 18 percent identifying as African American/
Black, 27.2 percent as Asian American, 13.3 percent as Latinx, 1.2 percent as Native American, and 0.6 percent as Native Hawaiian. Women account for more than half, 52.9 percent, of all those accepted to the class.” (emphasis added).
10 years ago, when 80-20 first spoke up, Harvard admitted 17.8% Asian-Americans. To verify click here, and scroll down to Harvard Univ., 3rd paragraph. Our collective effort has increased Harvard's admission rate of AsAms by 53%. AsAm liberals should feel ashamed and wake up. They were defending Harvard even when Harvard was admitting just 17.8% AsAm students. Reject those AsAm liberals who betray our Children's equal
opportunity in education.
We didn't do it alone. Ed Blum, who leads SFFA to sue Harvard in courts, deserves our thanks. 80-20 EF annually contributes $10,000.00 to SFFA and is in close contact with Blum. When 80-20 doesn't have the resources to fight Harvard on its own, 80-20 seeks out great allies to do it together for YOU.
(2) Political Cohesiveness
49 80-20 supporters, not 16, each donated $80.20 to Sen. Duckworth, as was verified by Duckworth's campaign. So many of YOU responded to 80-20's
appeal! That is political cohesiveness.
In addition, 80-20 Empowerment PAC donated $8,020.00. Together, we thank Duckworth for inducing Pres. Biden to "appoint a senior level AAPI liaison at the White House who will ensure the community’s voice is further represented and heard.”
But, but, but!!! 2/3 of those 49 donors forgot 80-20's request to tell 80-20 after their donations had been made. For 80-20 to serve YOU well, we must know the amount of our possible influence - the influence of having delivered 16 donors OR that of having delivered 49. The latter is 3 times bigger!!!
We still need to WORK ON our political cohesiveness to maximize our
(3) SELF-Help! SELF-Empowerment !
Everything begins with SELF-empowerment!
Here is a good example. Hate crimes against AsAms usually occur where there are a lot of nearby AsAms. Hence, if EVERY Asian will ALWAYS take the following smart step to stop hate crimes against his/her fellow AsAms, hate crimes will be stopped.
What you need to do is very simple. If the hate crime you are witnessing is occurring at a crowded place like the subway or a busy street, you yell "STOP!" or "Call the police!" and encourage people near you to do the same.
80-20's $200,000 grant to seed Community Watch Teams in AsAm ethnic communities - another measure of SELF-Help - is still available. To apply, click here and go to section [B].
