All pls PM each other and exchange phone numbers and emails so that you can start building your local IV community. Once you have contacted each other, you can start the action items for state chapters.Core members can help you whenever you need help. However we want local members to organize themseves and form a community so that future events can be planned.

NY Folks,
Please try to get in touch with Senator Hillary Clinton. I contacted her and her office told me that I am not a resident of NY and hence I cannot get a personal meeting with her. Can one of you please try to meet her and the other senators/congressmen

Thanks,

I live in NYC as my current contract work is in NY, but my GC is being processed out of Texas and my consulting company is based in Texas. So what chapter do I belong?

pappu
03-16-2007, 01:20 PM
chanduv23 since you live in NYC could you pls take charge of the chapter and get the ball rolling. It will be great if you can take this responsibility. get in touch with NJ chapter members if you need guidance or need to collaborate.

Pappu, I can definitely do what it takes, the question arises on the amount of time I can spend. Both of us work on stressful schedules. I can get time off during weekends and sometimes during week days.

Let me try to understand and see what it takes. I am not as informed as you people on this and it will take sometime for me to understand the entire process.

Wall Street, Times , Rockafeller center ............ a lot of people working here are affected by retro.

Queens has a huge Chinese community, and definitely a lot of people affected by retrogression.

So many community hospitals sponsering h1b visas in NYC - thousands of physicians affected by Retrogression.

Lets mobilize. We can work together on this.

New Yorkers, lets mobilize, lets get active.

I started going through the details. I would like to do my best, but my schedules do not allow me to spend enormous amount of time on these efforts as I work as a contractor and travel to New Jersey everyday and also a busy spouse. I decided to help mobilize this community (NY) but we definitely need someone to lead the efforts.

I created a yahoogroups for people to exchange messages and will definitely keep mobilzing the group as I can deifnitely spare few hours a week.

So NY members, please come forward to lead this effort

I am new to the IV but impressed by what the organization has done for legal immigration applicants. This web now became my first stop of getting some info since I am the victim of July 2 retraction.

Let me know how to get involved and contribute to the chapter. I have sent my flower to USCIS and would like to know if it is possible for having our national organization to organize a flower drive to the capital hill arriving on same day? I feel if all flowers from all over the nation could arrive same day on Capital Hill, it may bring bigger attention and impact.

Thanks!

Contributed $100 two days ago and sent a flower to Lofgren w/ cards.

So far not received a receipt from my July 3rd I-485 filing. Check was not cashed out yet.

Does anyone's check for July submission being cashed out? Thank you.
