HR 3012 is in a crucial stage. We have been leading this bill from the beginning and these days Also discussing with various interest groups related to the bill and feel good where the talks are going. We are feeling confident and it is a matter of time when the bill is on Senate floor. But the goal is not just just get it on the floor but have support from senate to have it passed. Reaching out to as many senators possibible is a mammoth task. We need lot of support to get it through the senate. Please sign up for monthly contributions without wait so that we can pour more resources ASAP into this bill to bring it on senate floor. It is now or never for the next 2 years.


This is an urgent action item. Next week is very important for us. If you have not signed up for recurring contributions, please sign up now and post on this thread.

ONGOING CRITICAL ACTION ITEMS

Please focus on this AI from June 30th through the 4th of July weekend.

There are thousands of people stuck in green card backlogs, long wait times, retreogresion but are still not aware of H.R3012 -Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act and the benefits it brings by way of fairness, first-come-first-serve approach due to removal of per country caps.
We have to inform all such people about the bill and about IV grass-roots initiatives which have brought the bill close to the finish line now so they can join in the grass-roots efforts.


1) Print out - (color printouts much preferred) multiple copies of the following fliers

http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/ima...help_flier.pdf
http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/ima...chan_flier.pdf
http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/ima...i76_flier1.pdf
http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/ima...i76_flier2.pdf

2) Post the fliers - near all grocery stores, temples, theaters and other locations which are frequented by impacted/retrogressed EB applicants who will benefited by this initiative. Use your judgement wisely on where you post the fliers.

3) Caution - DO NOT post the fliers on USPS mailboxes, it is against the law.

4) Talk to your friends/acquaintances - Pick up the phone and call your friends, colleagues, acquaintances who are still not aware of this bill. Explain the importance of H.R 3012 - how it brings long-awaited fairness to the system and reduces wait times drastically for retrogressed EB applicants. Explain how the bill was passed overwhelmingly by the House and is very close to being passed by the Senate and signed into law. There is no better tool than talking to someone to make them aware of the importance of this legislation.
Encourage your friends to CONTRIBUTE to IV and help in the advocacy efforts.

5) Forward Flier - Forward soft copies of the flier to your friends, contacts and have them post it at locations in their neighborhood where it will be effective.

6) Like, Comment positively and share our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter. We are also on Google+ now. IV member donquit has been managing this single-handedly, on your behalf and its time to help him spread the message in social media world.

We are very close to the finish line and are confident that H.R 3012 will be passed by Congress and signed into law very soon. Let us add more grassroots efforts now and be part of this historic legislative initiative. Immigration Voice requires all affected EB green card applicants - waiting for years to get a green card they deserve - to speak up, join this campaign and be counted.

All action items continue to be important.

We need the support of every senator, writing to them helps.

We need the funds to advocate for our causes. We need the funds NOW, when the bill is yet to come for a vote. Battle lines are drawn and fought before the vote. Funds now translates to results that we want. Donate personally, bring awareness among your family and friends in every state and raise the money. As pappu has mentioned the next two weeks are crucial.

Your support is needed and is truly appreciated.

I am only sending letters to NJ Senators through IV action items. Do you suggest to send the letters to all the senators who are outside my state - NJ? If yes how can I send to all of them?

Thanks
