Thanks man. I beg to almost all members to take "Hand Written" words very seriously. In one of the recent meeting with congressman's staff, he clearly indicates that "Hand written" letters are most effective and have a high ratio to reach to Congressman's table. Now some may feel that "Old fashioned way". I understand, many of us may not have written by hand since last 10-11 years but if it is required to create the effect we should follow it. Now if somebody do not like to write then do it yor usual way (TYPE) but send such letters. And be innovative and completely overcome with "Template centric" mind set. Go with your personal problems what you faced due to this immigration slow down and retrogression problems, what IV is asking and why and how would it change the EB based legal immigration situation etc...

Default The time is right

Thanks everyone for getting the momentum to this idea.
needhelp - Thanks a lot for your letter draft and the brief chat we had this morning. Thanks to all for your invaluable suggestions.
Everyone,
I think this is the right time to get people motivated and mobilized towards this idea. The Dec Bulletin has just arrived and the frustration of people is at the peak. The heat may die in a month or so, so i think we need to act now and send hand written(may be in red ink ) letters to all the lawmakers in our respective region.

I have already talked to a few folks out here in Colorado and people are ready to chip in. I need the yahoo group published for CO ASAP so that I can start sending emails. Does anyone know the contact # of Paskal...looks like he has a request pending to publish the CO chapter yahoo group on the IV web.

Thanks again. I think this is the right time to act.

Regards,
Parijat.

I did send it...it was hand written. If I hear anything back, will let you know...but it is empowering in itself to be able to write out on this frustrating GC experience.

Hope others write too and feel for themselves the good feeling one gets when they are able to "do" something...

for doing it.
There are so many of our members with ideas and criticisms, but so few who follow through on something as simple as this.

Writing letters is a great idea, but we need to make this a massive campaign in order to be as effective as the flower campaign!

Some Q/A's:
1) Who are we proposing to send letters to: Your local House Representative (find out from http://www.house.gov/writerep/ using your zip code)/ Senator
2) What are we writing: Your own experiences... follwoed by a request for a resolution. While it is tempting to ask for a template, I think it is best to personalize the letters
3) Consider CC'ing a local newspaper

man-woman-and-gc/ needhelp!/ others: please share your thoughts.

I wrote to my senator. Followed the template (pointed out am member of IV) somewhat but personalized it based on my frustrations, where I'm at, etc, and posed resolution based on IV's agenda. It does need to be personalized.

The idea is to write to your local congressman/woman i.e. House Representative.

It is easy to find out your representative by going to house.gov

Apparently handwritten letters have the highest probability of being actually read by the representative himself.

EMAIL IS FORBIDDEN.. It will just be a waste of effort.

Sure.. if a lot of people do it, it can be called a campaign. Cost 41 cents.

can one only write to their senator or to other senators too?

Also i didn't get to CC a local newspaper on this....

hopefully others will join in on this and again NO EMAILs....hand written letters are the best way to go.
