CONGRATULATIONS & THANKS to many organizations & individuals who rose and acted against SCA5: Silicon Valley Chinese Association (SVCA), United Asian American for Activism (UAAFA), the Backbone Foundation, the Civil Rights WeChat Group, San Diego Asian American for Equability, Assemblyman Ed Chau, and many others.
Thanks to you,
great progress was made toward the 2 goals for which 80-20 issued a CALL TO ACTION about 20 days ago.
The 2 Goals stated in 80-20â€™s â€œCall To Actionâ€Goal 1: Stop SCA 5
â€“ an immediate need.
Make Asian Am elected officials accountable to our rightful interests. That will EMPOWER our community permanently.
Updating our ProgressGoal 1: SCA 5 is dead.
All who understand politics know that. The Republican Party is exploiting the SCA 5 issue in hopes of defeating Dem. candidates in the coming June 3 Primary and Nov. 4 General Election. The Dem Party is scared; and wants to get ride of SCA 5 ASAP to avoid a disaster in this yearâ€™s elections. What should we do? Using one political party to scare the other for its hurtful act against us is in the BEST democratic tradition. Keep on using this tactics!Goal 2: Will we get rid of SCA 5 permanently?
Unless we work to truly empower ourselves â€“ register more AsAm voters to increase  our voter-share in CA from the current
8% to 10%.
To scare the Demp Party, we should register as Republicans. If 10,000 more AsAms register as Republicans than Democrats before June 3, both parties will compete to serve our rightful interests. Officials from both parties SHALL become our public servants. (Note: You can vote D, as a registered Republican. 80- 20 will like the privilege of making a recommendation to you when the elections occur.) To truly empower ourselves, we need to
5af3 2 AsAm elected officials, one Dem senator and one assemblyman, for their failure to defend our interests during this SCA 5 episode. 80-20â€™ll advise, when the time comes.
