Good poster by needhelp.
Country quotas can be changed to "Per-Country Caps" ..
--- "...20 year wait for EB Green Cards"
to make it more recognizable.

The immigrationvoice.com part can be tweaked a little by adding the logo and having a fill-color, so it doesn't hurt the eyes by the double-line font
Just a small point ..

How about a slogan like:
"Tum mujhe support do
Mein tumhe aazadi doonga"

with IV image in the background and text explaining about HR3012 (with "HR 3012" in bigger font)

and below, write "Join IV today and represent yourself with the rest of us"

This message won't be understood by people who are diverse in what they speak other than hindi. As IV represents everyone regardless of the language they speak or language of preference, we need to make materials that sends the right message across in my opinion.

I think everyone associated with IV are very aware of HR3012. I think this poster needs to be targeted towards people who are not aware of such a movement. So some catchy keywords could be:

STILL WAITING FOR GREEN CARD?
STUCK ON H-1B?

Details about the bill and upcoming events could be in smaller font.

Thanks for your input

What you say is right, but don't you think it will appeal to the average Indian, and ROW'ers will likely ignore it

You can not assume every immigrant knows Hindi.

Very Good Point.

We can add this to needhelp's postr.

Retain Picture in needhelp's poster with change to "Per-Country Limits"

STILL WAITING FOR GREEN CARD? <Medium Font Size>
STUCK ON H-1B,L1? <Medium Font Size>
ACT NOW FOR HR 3012 <Large Font Size as in current poster>

I am noting everyone's points and working on making a poster.
Admin - Can i email the poster to you directly? Email address? Send as reply to Aman's last email?

Can someone tell me how to upload a file here for everyone to look?

Poster size 8.5X11? or Larger?

I created one poster with images of Gandhi, Mandela and MLK all great souls who stood for equality. Have passed it on to starsun and let us see if that idea works. the wordings need to be changed. Did not have much time so it might need to be modified a lot. hopefully they will post it online if acceptable to begin with.
However, pls continue to make one also so we can have multiple options to chose from. Different ones can work at different locations.

The phrase in Hindi is a famous quote by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. It would be familiar to our generation, stuck in this Queue
The rest is in English. The Hindi will simply catch attention, because it is posted in USA. They may or may not actually read that part.. its function is simply to attract the right eyeballs

Didnt get much time to put facts and numbers and good formatting. Please build on this if you like it.

# of Indian applicants for EB2 /EB3 Greencards - -------- THOUSANDS
# of EB2/Eb3 Green cards for INDIA only 2800 / category , under current country limits
# of people coming from Iceland/Libiya/Korea/Pakistan under 1000 per year
# Green cards reserved for them per year 2800
