Here is a letter template you can use to send out to your lawyers:

Dear XXXX,

On June 7th and June 8th 2010, around 150 high-skilled professionals including scientists, engineers and doctors will converge in Washington DC to meet with the nationís lawmakers on Capitol Hill and impress upon the urgent need for Comprehensive Immigration Reform. The intent of this wide-ranging two day advocacy event, coordinated by Immigration Voice, will be to highlight the plight of about a million high-skilled professionals and their families who are unable to obtain permanent residence or green card due to a broken immigration system. We have planned over 300 Congressional meetings on the Hill, meeting over half the Congress in two days, to petition the federal government for fix green card backlogs.

On behalf of Immigration Voice, I would like to invite you to Congressional Reception organized on behalf of highly skilled immigrants. The reception is at U.S. Capitol Visitors Center, Room HVC-200, at 5:30pm-7:30pm on June 8th. Additional details of this planned advocacy event can be viewed at the following URL Ė
