Default US National Anthem & American friends

Guys,

How about start or finish the rally with US National Anthem ?

This will get a lot of attention. Above all it will show 'Legal Immigrants' different + communicate a lot.

Also encourage to get more American friends.

You can have a CHAI after the rally !

Good Luck.

This is a perfectly Gandhian idea:-) (He did that in South Africa)

Let's do it... the beer part should be postponed to some other time... presumably after all categories become C:-)

Default Update the Poll

We should update the question in the poll and make it specific only for people who live in and around of bay area, else the 'no I cannot attend' will be from all IV members who have no way to attend since they dont live in the bay area.

Default Attire!

It would have been great if everyone could have a similar white t-shirt with a slogan on front that said

"Ask me about legal immigrants"

and on the back

"www.immigrationvoice.org"

Obviously this is not possible at this stage. How about everyone at least pinning something similar that is printed on a paper on their shirts? Similar to how runners do (http://z.about.com/d/studenttravel/1...hon-solo-2.jpg)

It will help the organizers and any media persons in identifying the rally participants easily.

At this point, I am assuming that everyone that said "no" its because they don't live nearby
