UPDATED WITH DETAILS OF ACTION ITEM[/u][/b]

About H.R-3012

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...r2_updated.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. Please start this weekend and continue through the July 4th weekend.

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 become members and 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.

Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/#!/Support.HR3012
Twitter - http://twitter.com/Support_HR3012
Google+ - https://plus.google.com/s/immigrationvoice

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.

There is a NATA conference in Houston this weekend. I am not going to it but I think it would be a good idea if somebody who is going to it can post the posters at some prominent place there.

Thanks

It needs to be serious/sincere attempt to communicate and easy to understand in 2 -5 seconds. That is the attention span.

The e U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in their web site states,
About the EEOC: Overview
"The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information"

Which is USCIS discriminating for Employment Based Immigration by introducing a cap based on national origin. Also it is common sense, EB Immigrants can come/get jobs only that are in demand and no sufficient US Citizens / LPR are available to fill. It is high time, the cap be removed.

Folks with creative skills, if you can get this message into the the poster / banner you creating will send a message - this is discrimination !

Here are some of my thoughts, if any of them is catchy, probably somebody with cartoon skills can make something up too..

================================================== ========
Are you one of them, feeling lonely standing in line waiting for your turn that never seems to come? Well join us at Immigration Voice, the largest grassroots organization for people like you and me. Lets together make a difference!
================================================== =======================
Employer = Profit
Lawmaker = Vote bank
Immigration Attorney = Fees
Immigration Voice = You
Join our movement; we are the largest grassroots organization that is making a difference.
=========================

Can you hear ME now? No
Can you hear US now? Yes
Be a part of Immigration Voice and join the thousands of voices that can make a difference.
============================
Do you know, depending on where you were born, you may have to wait 30 years to get your employment based green card due to Country Cap limitations? Help us fight together. Join immigration Voice and support HR 3012 to make a change.
=======================================

Comment: If somebody can make a cartoon on this, that would be a great visual feel rather than the phrase.
Imagine you are participating in a 100 meter dash in the upcoming Olympics and you represent your country. You then realize depending on the country you represent, your finish line gets moved over a mile. Does it make sense? No! Immigration Voice feels the same way with employment green card application based country cap limits. Join us and make our voice heard.
