Default Media Campaign - DO you support

As the economy is on its tailspin, the backlash is growing against immigrants. We have to make sure the public is aware of the real scenario. One way is to increase the awareness - the media campaign. I am thinking two possible ways.

1. NPR – nation public radio
2. Local desi channels

NPR will create the awareness among the American public where as the desi channels will get us more members.

In NPR, we can either arrange for talk show or sponsor some popular shows. Most of the people listening to NPR during driving to/from work. These are prime time and if you want to sponsor a program, its going to cost more.

We need a focus group with at least with 100 guys who can donate at least $100 a month

If you guys are ready, I can find out more information and work with IV core on this.

The goals are to increase the public awareness and get more members. We need to get ride of the free riders also.

So please poll here if you are ready for this.

Please dont forget to add your id and comment here.

Default Too much focus on illegal immigration

there is a new front page article on cnn about illegals moving back from US.
http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/02/10/imm...omy/index.html

Since there is so much focus on illegal immigration, maybe we can write up a thorough letter and post on CNN like Lou Dobbs (i know he is against immigration, but we can win him over with legitimate points) or other blogs..
Someone will take up our issue.

I don’t think we need win Lou dog and you can not convince him as he is anti-immigrant. Lets try to make the ordinary people understand our cause and dont confuse with illegals. We dont have to get into that.

We can do it one time. But if you sponsor a program in NPR, its daily. People will hear the IV name everyday. I will bring in other people and awareness.
