I will answer some of your questions to the best of my knowledge.

There is also a lot of information on advocacy on the top of this page, 'Advocacy' tab.
Red threads are action items started and approved by admin/core. donor threads say "donor forum" on the title.

Admins are still in the process of organizing, and a lot of this can be done only once we finalize most of the volunteers and donations collected - it will depend on this.

Contributions are optional and no money is expected from volunteers, except what you spend for your own stay and travel. Of course every one knows There ain't no such thing as a free lunch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. people still do wish though!
The only free lunch is meeting your local lawmakers as they are obliged to listen to your issues. That is the only thing we have asked most people to do in large numbers

Business dress code should be good enough. We are trying to convey we are high skilled immigrants and future entrepreneurs who create jobs.

You're right most lawmakers don't even know we have a problem and the reason is we as a community are not reaching out to them. Representatives of house change every 2 years.

Thanks for your efforts. Employer support is very important in conveying our issues. Large companies have their own political lobbying group. Support of citizens and Green card holders helps a lot.
We still need a lot of volunteers all over the country, who are ready to work and not just post brilliant ideas on online forums.

Everyone has to work and spread information. Its no good saying why doesn't core do this or that and everything else.

Try to be in DC on Saturday by noon and look for a red-eye on Tuesday night. The final details will be announced later, but the above mentioned option allows for a total participation in the event.

Members from the mid western states - your participation is crucial in the advocacy efforts.

OH, IN, IL, TN, KY, MO, AR, KS, OK

It is very difficult to get appointments from legislative offices if no one from their constituency will be attending the meeting.

The DC Advocacy effort is for YOUR green card. Please take the time to talk to your employers now and get the required 2 days off to participate in the event.

Thumbs up Please attend the advocacy days for your own good!

Dear IV Members,

Just want to share some personal information with you. I was quite skeptical about such events myself, but after attending the previous advocacy event, I learnt that these efforts do really bear fruits. IV is graciuosly taking respinsibility for all the logistics of the event and speaking for you and me, SELFLESSLY, I must add. So, please make the effort to attend and I, for one, can assure you that you will not be disappointed and leave with a satisfaction that there are countless others who are in the same boat as you are and are making an effort to better the situation. And IV is always there to help!

So, please make every effort to attend this event!

Sincerely,
av2004
