Count me in....

Some one asked why Sept 13th. There has been a lot of thought put in picking that date I guess. It can not be Friday or Monday as these are not the days when the majority of lawmakers are in tranist from their home constituencies I guess. Lets make it a success. I will bring some posters along.

Long live IV, we will make it happen... Go IV Go.

Default Please explain

Hi Logic Life,

I am fairly new to this forum. Could you please explain to us as to how you came up with the number of participants as 10,000? Is it based on the number of IV members in and around DC?

PS: I am calling all my NY and NJ friends to attend this rally in Washington DC, and make it as a very successful event.

Regards,
IK

This is Great!!! Already received first batch of confirmations from members in CA, MI, TX, MN, AZ, NJ, IL, IN, NY, VA, NV, PA, GA, FL. I can already feel the positive energy flowing here.

If possible, please consider to be in DC on Sept 13th and Sept 14th. We will arrange for meetings with the office of the Senators and Congressmen on Friday (9/14). So we could all go in the groups of 100-200 from each state to meet with every office. IV community has grown substantially and we believe that the Rally, along with the meetings on the Hill with the office of lawmakers, will turn the tide of this debate. This will bring our issues to the forefront and part of the national debate. There is lot of activity going on and our rally is perfectly timed. If ever we could participate to change the course of EB green card provisions, then this is it. It may be slightly inconvenient to travel during the week and you may have to take 1-2 days off from work. But in the end, you will see that it is well worth it. Also, if you ask the participants of San Jose rally, everyone who participated in the San Jose rally will tell you their sense of satisfaction from participating in that rally. This is our chance to make the difference and we think that this rally will be extremely consequential for the entire EB green card debate.

We will urge all members to maybe talk to your friends and find out if it would be feasible to rent a bus from your city/area. IV will try to provide assist and help with the arrangements in every possible way. More importantly, our families are the silent soldiers of this effort, so all members are requested to please attend the rally with your family. I am sure that we will see new ideas emerge in next 6 weeks as the discussion about the rally picks up steam.

As we already know that rally in DC will demand a massive mobilization, planning and coordination. So we need help from everybody for making this a SUCCESS. Lets all have a constructive dialogue with our colleagues, friends and neighbors about attending the rally, together.

Thanks,

Very well explained waldenPond.

Senators needs to feel the pressure. When IV members from different states meet their office in DC the lawmakers will do everything to bring our issues to the forefront and part of the national debate.

Everyone gets 2-3 weeks official vacation. There is enough time and so please inform your company and take 2 days time off from work.

Default Carpooling, group reservations etc

If you live within 300-400 miles of DC and want to drive and carpool with a fellow IV member in your city, go here

http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=90

Also, use that subforum for group reservations. A lot of sites like expedia and hotwire offer huge discounts if you book tickets in big number. If you live in a bigger city, then you can co-ordinate with friends and book reservations in groups.

But DO NOT let the group forming hold you up. IF you cant find someone, then just book your travel alone ahead of time. Its still 6 more weeks to go and tickets are available at discounts right now coz its still early.

Monday and friday are bad coz lawmakers are travelling. We have either Tuesday, Wed or thursday.

Tuesday is September 11th and therefore out of question coz immigration rally cannot be attention grabber on Sept 11th anniversary.

Wednesday is middle of week that would require max number of days off from work.

Thursday is good coz you can spend one more day and you have weekend following immediately and therefore more flexibility in choosing travel dates if you plan to fly in.

Hence Sept 13th.

Default Standing out in DC thro our rally

Sr. Members,

Great Idea!

One suggestion. How can make this a unique rally? I guess in DC, there will be rallys on a daily basis.

We are technology workers. Can we make this a unique / standout rally ! by wearing say white shirt and a tie (for Gentleman) and similar formal dress for ladies.

Imagine 10,000 member formal dressed rally!!

Just a suggestion.

Default Willing to book Travel for 1 Core team Member on my Airline Miles

I would definitely join.. In addition to that I am willing to book travel for one core member on my Airline miles. This is the least I can do in appreciation with all the effort and time the core team has put in to make a lot of things happen..

Please PM me to discuss logistics or if you want me to contact anyone..

I would urge other members who have miles to spare ..to do the same.
