Hello Friends,

I live in North Florida. Please post here if you live in Tampa, Pensacola, Destin, Jacksonville, Tallahassee and surrounding areas or if you live in FL. Letís plan to do a drive to meet the lawmakers in the districts and congratulate them for winning the elections. It is also a good time to meet the newly elected lawmakers and request then support legal employment based green card provisions. Your help is very important for this initiative and for finding permanent fix to the broken employment based green card process. We need to group in local areas and we need to send a consistent message to the lawmakers and their staff in the local areas. It is also important for us to inform our friends about Immigration Voice. Here is a link to send email communication to your friends:

Look forward to meeting you.

Thanks,
WaldenPond

Hello Naveen,

Always good to hear from you. Let's spread the word and get more IV members involved. I am planning to go and meet Representative Alan Boyd next. It would be great if we could go together.

Thanks,
WaldenPond

All pls PM each other and exchange phone numbers and emails so that you can start building your local IV community. Once you have contacted each other, you can start the action items for state chapters. Waldenpond and Sunny are IV core members that can help you whenever you need help. However we want local members to organize themseves and form a community so that future events can be planned.

Hi,

It is action time for FL members. Please help co-ordinate the DC rally. Help is needed to spread awareness about the rally by putting posters in ethinic stores and leaving flyers in there. Also please confirm your participation in the rally, so that the logistics can be worked.

Send me email at ravi@immigrationvoice.org , if you have any suggestions, questions or doubts.

Thank you.

On this thread I noticed that there is somebody by the handle "glen" who is also doing some work for Florida. I sent him a PM but have not heard back from him.
