Default Immigration Voice DC Situation Room : 15, 16, 17 Sept

Hello everyone,

We have a reserved a meeting hall starting 5 PM on Saturday (9/15) to 10 PM on Monday (9/17) at the following location:

THIS IS WALKING DISTANCE FROM UNION STATION. MARYLAND, VIRGINIA AND DC MEMBERS, PLEASE SHOW UP, NO EXCUSES.

Concord room
Ballroom level
Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill
400 New Jersey Avenue, NW ,
Washington , D.C. , USA 20001
Tel: +1 202 737 1234 Fax: +1 202 737 5773

This will be our situation room for gathering, organizing and meeting up for rally and related activities. Please be available here for volunteering and organizing.

Link for Directions:

http://washingtonregency.hyatt.com/hyatt/hotels/services/maps/index.jsp?icamp=propMapDirections

Hyatt on Capitol Hill is walking distance from the Hill and is accessible via metro train. We will have access to printers and internet. Every one is encouraged to get their laptops if you wish to access wireless internet at the Situation room. We will have regular coffee and water served in the meeting room.

The plan of activities:

The plan is that starting 5pm on Saturday (9/15), we plan on gathering at Hyatt meeting room. We will all have to make ourselves available here as soon as we get into DC. There will be multiple simultaneous sessions to plan and coordinate all the four (4) events including every meeting with the lawmaker's office. Chapter Leaders are requested to be present at the Situation room for most part of the weekend. It's going to be lot of fun.....

Still Thinking ...???

If you are still hesitant about the rally, think again. You are going to be missing a lot. If you live within 300-400 miles of DC, its still not too late. Ask for 2 days off tommorow from your boss, and come to DC on Saturday and stay thru Tuesday afternoon.

You really really will regret missing this historic event.

If you are worried about security, permits and legality of the rally, then you should read this and make up your own mind.

Hi guys,
Right now I've my flight booked for 18th. But I was wondering if I change my flight to 16th (sunday) and come there, will I be of any assistance to the planning, etc.? I am not a state chapter leader.
Again this can happen only after I get my leave approved, and I get a reasonable flight price. Also if I can come, is there any way for me to share hotel accomodation with others?
Please let me know ASAP. Thanks.

p.s. I am not sure if this thread will be read soon, so I'll be posting the same message in other threads too. Pls bear with me.

rest assured that you do not have to be a chapter leader to be of help!
all hands are needed on board...

as for sharing a room- i'm sure it's possible- post on the partner thread and contact those guys- also you might consider actually staring a tread with that question- Wanted- Room share or something such!

The following are some parking information, but that may be bit further from situation room.

Parking and Metro Access

Free all-day parking available in Lots A, B, and C in East Potomac Park near the Jefferson Memorial. Spaces are limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. Free 3-hour parking is available near our stop in West Potomac Park on Ohio Drive SW, south of the Lincoln Memorial.

Paid parking for both cars and buses is available at parking lots located at Arlington National Cemetery ($1.25 per hour for the first 3 hours, $2.00 per hour thereafter) and at Union Station, call (202)898-1950.

Metro is Washington's safe, clean, and convenient subway system. Routes are identified by colors, each subway stop is equipped with an information kiosk, and for your added convenience, there are several Metro exits within easy walking distance of our Tourmobile route.
