Default Meeting with the law makers - NJ State Chapter

Hello All,
I just wanted to let everyone know that two of us from the NJ state chapter met with a Congressman in our district. The meeting was for 40 mins and it went etxtremely well. The Congressman and his office staff were very very cooperative. They understood our problems and the Congressman is pro-legal immigration. Another Congressman from my district has also agreed to meet me. So everyone please contact your local Congressman. The person contacting the Congressman must be from his district, otherwise, Congressmen do not respond. Once the meeting is arranged, 1 or 2 more people either from the same or a different district can attend the meeting.

There is no need to be shy or afraid. Congressmen have an obligation to meet with people from their district and they are very cooperative usually. So please contact your local Congressmen. We have to re-enforce the legal immigration issues to those Congressmen who already know and educate those who don't.

Thanks,
Varsha

Thank you Varsha and the team of NJ chapter members for taking this initiative.

Imagine the kind of impact we can make if each one of us goes out and meet their lawmakers. Immigration Voice provides us all a platform and support to facilitate this initiative.

Our strength will grow leaps and bounds if all states actively participate in 'Meet the lawmakers drive'.

Default We should especially focus on immigration subcommittee members

Though we should try to meet as many lawmakers as possible, I think considering our limited resources our first focus should be the immigration sub-committee members.
The members are listed here :

It would be a good idea to post how you were able to schedule these appointments so that other members can use your experience. Did you call in/email/filled in web requests etc? How long did it take for you to get an appointment? What kind of issues did you run into in getting the appointment?

Thanks
