Yes, very important to do this. As a matter of clarification, I think we want to do this everywhere over the country, at least the East Coast, and not just around DC.
Most owners will let you post these on a "bulletin board" that is, sometimes, already crowded. Others may allow you to keep a bunch of flyers on the desk, but not affix anything. When we did this for the SJ rally, passers- by showed interest at times, and that of course helps spread the word too.

NOTE: In order to distribute flyers in public places such as train stations etc you will probably need to ask for permission. This can take up to a week or so for approval, so have to act quickly.

Default Organized effort

Posters and flyer distribution must be an organized effort. It will be more effective than a random effort.

State chapters must identify volunteers - group volunteers, identify public areas where immigrants visit (grocery, temple, mosque, church etc..) Plan the coverage areas and routes and every volunteer must take responsibility of a particular area and cover it.

This has to be done ASAP and can be done in phases.

Absolutely.

IVers, PM me if you have any questions.

It would be great if the State chapter leaders can coordinate the local volunteers. I can share some experience from San Jose rally.

Default Date: Sept 18, not Sept 13?

If Sept 18 is now the final date (as latest messages suggest), someone needs to delete initial messages for Sept 13. And there need to be occasional reminders that date is not Sept 13 as originially planned.
