Default Action Item for the next 2 weeks: A massive flyer and poster distribution campaign

IV requests all its members to channelize their positive energies for the next two weeks in the following action item. It would be in the best interests of all of us if we manage to make the rally a great success. As we are just 4 weeks away from the rally date, we request all the members to concentrate and work hard on this action item.

We would request all the IV members to coordinate with your state chapters or with any of the following volunteers and participate in a massive flyer and poster distribution campaign.
Tri State and surrounding areas – tikka (Rohika), tnite (Naveen) alternately singhsa3 (Sanjeev)
DC and surrounding Areas – nixtor (Shiva)
MN MW Chicago and Midwest – paskal (Puneet)
West Coast – gsc999 (Gopal)
For other areas – please volunteer

The first phase would be to take printouts of these flyers and fact sheet. Please find them at the following links

http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/sh...ad.php?t=12233 (Sept 18 Rally action item: Flyers/posters)

Every member can contribute by taking at least 100 printouts each (at your home or Kinkos ~10 cents a copy or wherever you can take free printouts) . This has to be done “AS SOON AS POSSIBLE”.

The area heads will be grouping areas and assigning volunteers and regrouping them based on their availability and their place of residence and work to collect the printouts and also start distributing them based on an action plan.

The areas of distribution will be
(1) Grocery Stores
(2) Places of worship
(3) Restaurants
(4) Train Stations
(5) Bus Stations
(6) Areas with high immigrant population
(7) Cafeterias at big companies
(8) Other places frequented by immigrants

Please concentrate on this action item for the next two weeks.

It would be great fun if people living nearby each other can team up and work on this action item together.

Perseverance is the key to success here and we need to be very persistent on these action items.

Please utilize this thread for pledging your contribution towards this effort in terms of
(1) Printing
(2) Distribution
(3) Coordination

You can utilize this thread for mobilizing action plans and recording the results.

So please come forward and start working on this action item.

I just had a chance to go over the fact sheet and have a comment about the following line:

For India, average numbers of EB GCs issued in last seven years were 32K (~12K families).

This makes IV look like an Indian organization. Even though most of them are from India, we should make the fact sheet look more global. Something like this:

For Instance, average number of EB GCs issued to applicants from India in last seven years were 32K (~12K families).

Or anything else that would make it more generic. Its just a thought because IV core has, in the past, worked very hard to remove the 'desi' tag attached to our organization and we don't want this to recur. Especially when the fact sheet is going to be posted publicly in many places in the coming weeks.

Default From Aman

This is from Aman:

My suggestion is that it would good to let the members know that:

In 2006 (when no recaptured visa numbers were available - the recaptured numbers were over in 2005), India, China and many other countries got around 9K GCs (around 3K each in Eb1-2&3).

See: http://travel.state.gov/pdf/FY06Annu...bleV-Part2.pdf


If the total pending 485 applications before June bulletin are 200,000 and now additional 200,000 have been submitted, then out of 400,000 applications, the number of applications from India would be atleast 40% = 160,000. Given the rate 9K GCs per year, the current backlog for applications from India will take around 20 years to clear



That means for next 2 decades applicants will spend on EADs and APs. It is practically impossible to stay at the same job title and same job description and same salary range for next 2 decades. So even if members have applied for 485/EAD/AP, wait of next 5-6 years will simply be devastating careers and destroying lives.



Just my 2 cents!



Aman
