Thumbs up McCain visiting pro-immigration rally in NYC TODAY

http://www.nysun.com/article/27801

This is our chance to pass on information about us to a a very influential/pro immigrant senator. I know there are many volunteers of IV based in NYC. Can anyone from New York take the lead and get a group of folks to go attend the rally and hand our brochure to Sen. McCain?

I will be attending this call in New York. But I am not sure where exactly it is being held. I would urge all of us from the Tri-State area to attend it.

Anyone else wishing to attend it, let me know and we can go together. You can email me at siva@immigrationvoice.org with your contact info.

Trying to get the data from New York Immigration Coalition which is one of the sponsors. They say they are closed for the holidays. The Aila action alert says that it is New York City Town Hall but it is not listed as an event in the NYC Town Hall.

Default Professional agenda

It's a good opportunity.

I have a browsed another thread on the forum that made a mention of some quick and surefire compilation of material (presentation material, links/sources to various pro-immigration proponents/views, appealing material in Binders et al). This is what amounts to a professional approach. We ought to gain the fastest buck with the BIGGEST bang over a few minutes!

Admin, I presume you have access to this material and can compile it. How are you planning on the agenda of meeting with Sen. McCain (please include nitty gritty details, as to who would spearhead the talk from our end, dress code, the intended time of the meeting, the planned time to assemble etc) .

From the recent articles on Sen.McCain's initiatives, the aspect of 'legal' immigration doesn't surface yet. This would be the best and well-timed opportunity to provide Sen.McCain with our part of the world.

Please reply back ASAP. I hope on pooling a few of our retro-bretheren

Default Letter to Sen McCain

Guys,

Contacting Sen. McCain is a good idea - he is a honest man, would understand our problem and may help. In this regard I have couple of questions:
1. Do you have the address of his office - I intend to send him a letter similar to the letter you suggested to be sent to DOL office. (another option is to dig the Internet for this address)
2. Do you consider relevant a formal letter on behalf of all registred members of the IV organization to be sent to Sen. McCain's office ? This could be in addition to contacting him in person as you suggest.

I live in Florida and cannot support you in NY but will try my way to help your noble efforts.

Everyone,

I have beent trying to get in touch with McCain's office but no one there knows where exactly the meeting is. The final word I got is that it is being held in SEIU building in the Avenue of the Americas and that it is at 5 o clock. But I am still not able figure out where that building is.

I have been trying to contact New York Immigration Coalition at 1-800-566-7636 but it only allows phone numbers from New York. Can any one else try that number and get more information about the town hall meeting?

bkam,

You can get McCains contact information at http://mccain.senate.gov/

I got a call back from McCain's scheduler and she also did not have much information. I am not sure whether they are trying to hide this town hall meeting.
