Default Need Help to Call California IV members

Non Bay area members please volunteer to call, inform and encourage IV members to join the rally.
The Active Bay area chapter members are swamped with other action items.
Please Help!

You may not be able to attend the San Jose rally but you can still be part of the effort by volunteering to help call the members in California and inform them about this event. You can call even if you are on the East Coast. This is urgent!

This will help us focus on other logistic issues like banners, posting flyers.
Your help will make the San Jose peaceful walk a success!

Organizers may want to think about this.


I guess formal or semi-formal wear should be good enough in the heat.

Default There is Good Momentum

With the immense success of the 'Gandhigiri' movement, there is possibility that this rally could get the desired attention.
Please encourage people you know to join in the rally.

-We have members of the chinese community joining us in large numbers.
-We have a member of the Indian Student Association of the SanJose State University trying to spread the word.

The momemtum is gathering, please do your part.......

Thanks

Default Ideas to increase publicity

Some one suggested ..
-keeping in spirit with our recent flower protest, we should hand out single flowers on the day of the rally

- There was another suggession about having ballons in the hands of kinds with messages on them.... I dont know if we can get balloons with messages but what do you guys think about balloons in kids hands.. The Kids who are born here are citizens .. and they support our cause ....

Thumbs up Media Matters

I think you guys are organizing a watershed event for skilled, legal immigrants - I wish you great success.

I cannot emphasize the importance of alerting media to this. Media attention is not at its best over the weekend so you will have to work extra hard to make sure that you get good media coverage. I hope that someone is working on creating a press release for the event.

While we were creating the press release for the flower campaign, we were given the following advice by a friendly journalist
  1. Make sure that you have a catchy slogan and title for your press release and the event
  2. Don't let your press release be a big mass of text. Break it down into What, Where, When and Why (refer to flower campaign PR if you need to)
  3. In the media contact, absolutely have at least one contact with cell phone number and name. It is important that journalists can all and talk to a person if needed
  4. Also have a post event press conference
All the best guys.

I won't like to take names on public forum of the Congress members we have/will approach. But to answer you question, we are taking all necessary steps to make this walk a success. Also, the measure of success will be a large turn-out by legals to protest, which in itself is unprecedented. We won't like to marry the success of this protest with the presence of any particular Congress member or Senator at this time. The bottomline is, media coverage for our issue.

I'm more of the opinion that White shirts and Denims should be fine. Suit in bay area makes no sense. We are all after all geeky engineers after all.. like some one said!
