There are 2 programs.

First one is at circle of palms at 10 am.
Then we all go to San Jose center for performing arts. That program begins at 2 pm and will end at 4. Please note since we have a lot to cover there is no margin for delay . So everything will start on time. If we get final confirmation from Bollywood celebrity then we have to squeeze that too in this program. So be on time.

Additionally we have official from administration also coming who helps shapes the admin fixes, USCIS rules. So if someone wants to hear about that, come to San Jose. Next time I hear people asking updates for admin fixes and xyz on USCIS, the first question I will ask is if they came to San Jose event. If they are not recurring subscribers or did not show up when it mattered, no update for them and no armchair suggestions etc accepted from them

Default Donating..

Making a one-time contribution of $500 to IV.

(Your transaction ID for this payment is: 4NG656149X832863P)

A poor substitute to being present in San Jose, but not letting perfect be the enemy of good.

This is in addition to monthly and earlier one-time contributions.

Hi All,

Its been a while that I posted something, but I'm now in when its needed most.
1st things 1st. I may be able to convince 2-3 guys to come, but its going to be expensive for them to bear all the cost, no offense on anyone.
Please let me know if you can support part of the trip, from our end, we will do as much as we can from our end. I do know there are a good # who are not able to travel, but willing to sponsor the trip. It sounds not bad to me either to use the sponsorship option, than spending all the $1000 by myself flying from the east coast. Please point me to that link ASAP and what we need to do.

I encourage everyone to participate in whatever way you can. If you cannot make it, do your part by contributing to IV, and IV will have funds to sponsor those willing to travel. It comes back to you.
We need good strength to make this successful. Nothing will taste sweeter than passing 3012 at this time.
Sri.

Sorry about the title in prev post, I wanted to edit it, but there is no option, after saving it.
The correct title is as in this post.

Do NOT be sitting on the fence just watching, you will not be able to face yourself, whatever direction the bill takes.
Its like making your own baby. You have to be in it. Do not expect others to help here

Guys, please excuse me for not making it to the rally due to health reasons. My doctor has recommended "no flying" for a few more months. I am dejected, sad and upset for not being able to make it.

Over the weekend, I made some phone calls to bay area folks. One of them told me HR 3012 has passed, another told me there is nothing that can be done and there is no point spending time, rather just go back home, another said I have to drop my son to tuition class that day and the most weirdest that I heard was I have an hair cut appointment.

So, for a moment, I felt I was trying to sell a time share. It is purely awareness, people are not aware, or people are sitting in their own comfort bubbles not realizing one bad quarter can change everything. I have experienced first hand how life in bay area is, you are working hard and you are getting paid well, suddenly the bubble burst and within hours you are given walking papers. How insecure life is.What do you do, what happens to your hair cut appointments, what happens to your sons Math tuition, are you ready to pack your bags and leave? This is exactly what I told them, it sounds draconian but it happened to me, it happened to so many of us, I remember they would call me in and before even letting me get to a walk in interview, had to pass a screening written test. Folks, if you have a green card, you can still keep your hair cut appointments, you can still at leisure look for the job you want, you don't have to constantly keep thinking about going back. There will reach a point where even if you want to go back, your spouse may not want to, or your kid may not be. Be fair to your family, protect and invest in their future, even if it is not for you, come join this movement. The feeling of doing something about it is very rewarding. You can see it today, people open threads on needing help, I feel really bad, I wish I can do something for them, the least I can do is show up for the summit with my wife, my 2 year old son! Hope you will too.

After this event on September 8 absolutely no updates to anyone who has not taken part in IV event on the forum. Even donor access to current and new donors will get tough. If someone is coming to IV site asking for updates, blaming IV for nothing, whining or seeking desperate help due to denials or late EAD card etc..... The first question asked is if they have a recurring subscription for the last 6 months and what else have they done to be a part of IV to help themselves till now. If they cannot answer it is better for them to go and get a haircut or change their profession to a hair dresser. A high skilled professional, earning well cannot give any excuses for not contributing $100 and not showing up for the events when it matters. Such people are better off tracking and predicting, worshing their lawyers and getting screwed over and over again in their immigration journey. No more sympathies and melting of hearts for individual cases by IV after this event if someone has not bothered to be a part of this organization.

There are some people on the east coast or in the southern states who have not yet confirmed their participation. There is still time to book the tickets. If you absolutely cannot come, please contribute the amount you would have spent on airfare, hotel and food if you had come to IV. This event has many expenses and this is the least each one of us can do to support the event. Those On the west coast should not contribute to this event. Their attendance to this event is mandatory.
