Default Sept 18 Rally: Last Phase of planning and important drive


Dear members,

As we enter the final week of our rally preparation we would like to thank our members that have indicated that they would be coming for the rally. We also want to thank all state chapter and action item leaders for helping us out in this massive effort. This planning, coordination and implementation cannot happen without the help of each and every member. Help has ranged from phone call campaigns, publicity campaigns, media campaigns, lawmaker meetings, banner preparations, Merchandise set up, state chapter activities, Bus initiatives, Transportation and accommodation initiatives, sponsorships, reaching out to law offices and like minded organizations etc to tasks as important as deciding the Dinner menu for the Sept 17 event.

We still have a long way to go in our planning and implementation. IV membership is working hard to make this rally a success. The Sept 17th lobby day work is being implemented at this time and lawmaker office appointments are being sought. Everyone that has indicated their presence for this event will be contacted this week. We are planning a big reception event on September 17, from 6PM to 9PM at the Cannon Building in DC. IV members, lawmakers, staffers, industry leaders and other like minded organizations are expected to attend this event. It will be a great opportunity for IV members to meet these important representatives. There is also going to be a big Press event on Sept 18th that we are planning. There are several initiatives being taken to have a big media push for the rally. The rally is in itself a huge task that requires planning from getting all police permits (which we already have) to transporting rally material, providing registration opportunity for members, getting lawmakers to address the rally to details like stage and sound system.

All this has required IV to invest heavily. We already invest almost all in our lobbying efforts and remaining little in Website maintenance till now and somehow manage to run this organization on shoestring budgets. We need about 30 thousand dollars in the next 8 days to make sure we can meet our needs and also make a big impact via this rally. This rally will most certainly bring our issues to the national center stage and help us get much needed immigration relief.

This post urges everyone to come forward and help us in this short term funding drive. If you have not contributed till now, please consider contributing. If you have got your Receipt notice/FP notice/EAD etc. then do show your admiration for our combined effort via lobbying, San Jose rally and Flower campaign that enabled everyone to file their I485s. If you have recently received your green cards, then please consider contributing as a way of celebrating and endorsing our effort.

We need help from each and every member reading this post. We will continue to post updates. Please visit IV site regularly.

Thanks
IV team

Sept 13, update.
Here is a small update on this drive. After seeing such great support and commitment from everyone, we have decided to invest in some media publicity effort. You will see a major push in this by Immigrationvoice and we all will be happy to see the kind of awareness and impact it will make on the Rally day. We have a modest budget of 11 thousand dollars for this effort added to the overall need of 30 thousand for the rally effort. Lets reach of this number (30+11= 41K) and even exceed the expectations in the next 4 days.

Sept 14 Update
Some fruits of the contributions members have made towards media and publicity work

http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/sh...ad.php?t=13395
http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/sh...ad.php?t=13392

We are able to do it, only because members are supporting it. More will follow until the date of the rally that will make us all proud. Thank you for your support. Pls. keep it up.

Thumbs up My contribution of $300

Paypal contribution of $300. I cannot make it to the rally because of prior commitments. Thanks to all who are going to be at the rally in person.

I feel good after making the contribution. Hopefully, several others will join this contribution drive and experience this good feeling first hand.

Good luck to all.

Just contributed another $ 100 for the Sept 18th rally. Already sponsored a ticket for a person for the rally. I cannot attend the rally because I have a son who will be joining pre-school from Sept 17. So I need to be in stay in Dallas for the first week or so from Sept 17th
