I have a friend waiting for GC since 9 years but not ready to spend 3 hours what a ridiculous thing.. Ofcourse I have friends who are doing great job volunteering for this event.
Folks this is the time....... Do favour for your self and for every one by dedicating volunteer work for 3 to 6 hours just this two weeks.

If 150 people come out for this effort, can't tell how great the result would be.

Come on guys you can do it... forget the family or work for just 3 to 6 hours. these two weeks.

Default Show numbers we have been waiitng on Sept 8th

Folks ,

Please let me know doing if this would be appropriate on September 8th.

People who are attending the event either face paint the number of years in waiting or wear a t-shirt with the number of years one has been waiting for in this mess.

If it is inappropriate then lets drop this idea.

Thanks

Default Please volunteer

I recently got in touch with ritu and started remotely volunteering for the effort by making phone calls. I strongly encourage others to join. We have barely 2 weeks left. We need to go all in with best efforts. Do not think about pass or fail. Just put in efforts and you wont feel bad for doing something in your power. It will be a shame if we dont help as by helping for this rally we in turn help ourselves. It does not matter if you can put in just 1 or 10 hrs. Just volunteer whenever you can. Think about the countless hours we put in our jobs and still stuck in immigration limbo. Nobody will care for us if we dont care ourselves. This great country allows us to express our voice openly. You may not get this level of freedom in any other country. If you never voice your opinion, you may never be heard however valuable your opinion is. Buckle up & Let us ride this to the finish line!!

Default Volunteer as much as you can

Guys,

I agree. We need to put in as much time as we can. This is the time to act. I did put on 4/5 hours calling friends in my list and also called from the list provided by IV. Let's get the message to as many folks as possible. I got in touch with folks with H1/students who will be in this queue in the future and they were excited to support us.

Default Mass Media Approach

I am volunteering for distributing fliers - But have we started any Mass media approach - I remember hearing something about announcements on local radio stations, how about News Paper/Internet Media etc? I know TV is expensive but we should line up some local channels like Kron4/ABC7 to show up at the event to get some coverage/traction.

There is an action item for media. Please do that everyday. It takes less than 1 min. If many people take part and put different zip codes, we will get more publicity.

People are suffering hanging in a balance waiting for AP and EAD approvals which we know are taking time and will not come on time. Imagine with HR 3012, you will be free, support IV, join the movement, attend the summit, sign up and make IV relevant. Its people like us for whom is platform is, we need to stick together and do our best and make this a success! Please post in this thread every time you have contributed, volunteered, booked your tickets and convinced others to join the summit. People who are in the fence or who have doubts will come on board. Come on guys, lets keep the momentum up. All the wonderful volunteers who are working round the clock calling strangers, working on logistics and planning and supporting and attending the summit, my kudos to all.

Default I will be there

I have never attend a rally before. This time round, I am not going to miss it. I am flying from South Florida on Red Eye flights. I am tired of only contributing financially. I want to stand shoulder to shoulder with brothers and sisters who have thus far gone above and beyond to help me.

To those who are on the fence, we need you! Wake up and help yourselves. Let's make this happen. We have spent thousands of dollars on renewing EADs, APs. Thousands more are left on the table due to tax breaks that we cannot avail (Florida Homestead Tax Break). This trip will costs less than $500 (includes return tickets, hotel and car). Why won't you come? Why won't you take this opportunity to come together with all of us ask for your rights? Why would you allow such blatant discrimination to continue?
To those with excuses, there is no execue. My wife is working the weekend sept 8th. She works 9-10 hr days. My kids (8 month old and 6 years old) will be staying with friends while I am at this rally. I am doing this for my future and theirs.

I was never part of any forums, never looked monthly bulletins etc... All I thought is give your best in your, work legal things will fall in place on its own and no point of worrying too much with the things which are not in our control…. But I was wrong, started worrying after a decade of waiting…. Recently my friend told me about IV and its work and found they are organizing a rally, how can I miss it ? How can I still sit idle aside and expect things to happen?? I am joining this rally. Do you ??
