If you already know the Ground Rules, click here to join IV's Nationwide Advocacy Group on Telegram or else read on...
Please read through the entire post before joining IV's telegram group(s)
Easy access URL to this post: telegram.ImmigrationVoice.org (ALWAYS use this to invite others stuck in backlogs)
The primary purpose of IV's Telegram Groups is to discuss (non-virtual) advocacy related action items around removal of per-country caps. Only folks who are genuinely interested in shoe & leather advocacy should join. You will find a lot of folks that are in the same boat as you and are working hard on a local level to complement IVs efforts in DC.
If you are just interested in updates and chatter on Visa Bulletins and when your date will be current, you will be removed from the groups. But if you are willing to step up and do things in your district / community / state - you will find a lot of great guidance. Post your questions and someone will address. Please DO NOT share or ask other members to sign online petitions unless so directed by one of the admins.
As an important first step, visit FIND YOUR REPRESENTATIVE and determine your Congressional District (state (ST) & district (DT)) using your residential zip code. In the telegram app (download it here), update your last name using your STDT as directed below. This will help everyone to easily connect with constituents from a particular state & district if & when needed for specific action items related to that District. When looking for someone from a particular district, if you were to just type @stdt telegram pops up with a list of names matching that criteria. But if folks have " , - , () or even space this doesn't work. When you have 100s of members who follow this protocol, managing things becomes much easy for everyone!
**LAST Name field of Telegram profile should only have 4 characters - 2 characters of your state (ST) abbreviation and the 2 digits of your district (DT) without any spaces or parenthesis or dashes or quotation marks as shown in the example above.
Secondly, update the automatic account deletion settings in Telegram app:
Lastly, keep this HR392 Summary document handy!
PS: From time to time non-compliant folks may be temporarily removed from IV Telegram groups - you can add yourself back, but keep in mind that you will only be able to do so a certain number of times before a permanent ban kicks in.
Please take a minute to fill out this CONSTITUENT form before proceeding to join IV's Advocacy Chapter(s)
