The year of the Ox is just what’s needed to clean up the mess and clutter left by the Rat. The Ox is not as he appears and should not be underestimated or considered slow or unaware. The Ox is the quintessential hardworking, cleaner-upper who will put everything back in order and turn chaos back into reason. Thank goodness!
There is no room for anyone looking for a free ride during an Ox year. Hard work pays off, not laziness. It’s a year to get papers in order and your life back on track, and to do whatever it takes to budget and plan for your financial future, lessening the stress and securing your position.

Kirby Wong, son of long time CISC supporter Ed Wong, needed 544 units of blood following heart surgery when he was just 44. Because the blood was mostly from people of European descent, his body developed complications which prevented him from receiving a life saving heart transplant.
Nine years later, Ed carries on his son's wishes to hold regular blood drives in the Seattle API community. YOU can save a life by giving blood on Saturday, February 28.
It takes less than an hour, it's easy to do, and nearly painless. Really! You may never know whose life you saved, but you will know you are saving lives.
Please call 206.721.3630 x 126 to set up an appointment right now. Or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org - don't wait!

According to exit polling result just released by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund and reported by APIA Vote, Asian Americans did get out and vote in the last election and made a showing of growing political clout.
In the survey, nearly 1/3 of Asian American voters were voting for the first time. Four out of 5 were foreign born citizens. One out of 3 had limited English proficiency. And Asian Americans interviewed shared common political interests across sub-ethnic lines.
Thanks for all our partners for their efforts to mobilize our community and make a difference! CISC continues to work on voter education and helping individuals become citizens so they can make their voices heard.
