Thumbs up IV featured on FRONT PAGE of Saturday's Philadelphia Inquirer

Immigration Voice has been featured on the front page of the Philadelphia Inquirer paper.

Gaiutra, the reporter has been very patient and receptive to our issues and we would like to thank her from the bottom of our hearts for writing an article about us . Also a big thanks to all the folks from Philly who volunteered for this effort (unfortunately not all could be interviewed)

Here is a link to the article

Default And if you get hold of a copy of PI

Check out Nozer and his wife's picture on the front page and another picture of Amol Jakatdar (both IV volunteers).

Default Great article : hits the bull's eye for message

We can utilize this link and write to your local newspaper reporters that each one of us is in such a predicament. I am going to write a few emails to local papers in Denver, CO. Will post progress here. Thanks everyone at IV.

The article is a good summary of all the aspects of retrogression that affects us.. Good work, philly volunteers!!! It definitely will inspire the rest of the IV volunteers to work harder and on similar lines..

This is one of the best articles to come out about our situation! Great effort by all those in the Philly area who laid out all the work for this article!

If we have more Volunteers like these, then our cause will be victorious!!! You rock, Another Volunteer!

Default Way to go!

This article is easy to read and covers the basic problems of the "legals". It it finds its way to a national news paper (USA Today could be simpatetic) or magazine, it will have a signifficant effect. The government would not be able to hide anymore the lousy work of the BECs and the Congerss would have to find a way to resolve the problem with the retrogression.

Proper publicity of the problem could help a lot.

Attn: MODERATORS
now that IV has at least two articles in the news featuring IV members, maybe a link on the home page main menu called "Press". This page will contain links to the named articles. Also the name of the person who should be contacted in case the journalist wants to write an article and needs some information.

Not sure if this page already exists
