Lightbulb voluntary dress code for rallys - Business suits

Guys, For better marketing our plight wearing business suits for rallys will have a significant impact on the perception of the rally on both onlookers and the press. It will immediately convey :
  • The professionalism of the crowd
  • The difference between previous illegal protestors and legal high skilled protesters
  • People will notice crowds of business suits and it will leave an imprint on their mind. Especailly in places like bay area they will just stick out
Organizers may want to think about this.

Yes, it is. However, California is hot and tech companies are a bunch of dorks in jeans

All kidding aside, we are preparing to be as smart as possible, whilst surviving a 3 hour march in 90 degree heat

This will help us focus on other logistic issues like banners, posting flyers.
Your help will make the San Jose peaceful walk a success!
I can not emphasis this enough. We need out of state volunteers to help call bay area members!

Is Arnold Schwarzenegger pro-immigrants? Maybe he can be approached and have him be our spokesperson... Just him, not the party he represents or the post he holds...

Guys,

When you go for this rally, it is better to have proof of your legal stay here like copy of your visa in passport or copy of your I-797.

==========================

IMMIGRATION VOICE ACTION ALERT: 7/11/2007.


Dear Members:

Immigration Voice is organizing its first peaceful protest rally in San Jose, CA on July 14th in order to protest the broken system of legal high-skills immigration. This protest march is being organized to oppose the enormous visas backlogs in the employment based immigration system. This protest march is also intended to oppose the recent decision of USCIS to block the adjustment of status petitions in July resulting from an unprecedented out-of-order reversal on the part of DOS and USCIS.

Please join this rally in huge numbers to create more awareness in the Media, Congress and the Administration. We are already getting attention of Congress and the Administration due to recently published articles on the flower campaign in New York Times and Washington Post on July 11th. If you cannot join but if you know someone who lives in San Jose area and who doesn’t know about this effort, please ask him or her to join this rally. More numbers will get us more media coverage and more attention to this issue.

This rally has the potential to bring our issue to the attention of everyone, including the Silicon Valley tech employers who have a stake in the morale and productivity of the hi-tech foreign employees in their companies and their backlogged immigration.
