Most free forums would like to increase hits, by spreading misleading information and having a paid member incite arguments, spread rumors - the popular porting one, or India, China, ROW one, to generate more hits. thats how they make money.
Its time for people to look beyond all that and do the only real thing that works - That is meeting law makers.
One of the best ways to do this is Direclty in Washington DC.

This is our only real chance until 2013.

Default Tentative Arrive and Departure date and time?

I plan on flying to BWI Airport and reaching there Saturday by 1:00p; Is that a good option?

If I want to have full participation - what would be a good schedule for my return flight? Will I be able to catch a 6:15p flight on April 5th?

Locals - please respond.

For a full participation, I would recommend a red-eye on Tuesday or at least a flight after 9pm est.

Please excuse my ignorance but what is a "red-eye" ?

There is a flight leaving BWI airport by 9:15p - I guess that may be a good option?

What are the options to travel from BWI Airport to IV gathering point?

9:15pm is a good option. red-eye means late night flight. There are a number of options from BWI to downtown DC. A bus and light rail train will get you there in an hour.

Tuesday evening would be a Congressional Reception. After that we would have an IV meeting with members to discuss IV next steps etc. So keep departure flights to be late Tuesday night or after. I would highly recommend being in the Congressional Reception. You will get to meet several staffers and lawmakers here and talk to them.

Red EYE.... Red-eye flight - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you are going back to West Coast, they are not called RedEye flights.

Exclamation Support for citizenship

To all:

For those of us, who have green cards, we would also like to participate, if we can add an action item to improve citizenship rules. Most of us have waited 10 yrs for green card, and waiting another 5 yrs on top of it is too much.

Also, h1bs + green card holders would be both interested in joining the cause.

say what?

I want to come to Advocacy day. If my plans change, I will contribute the amount I would have spent for my travel, food and stay in DC to IV.

An idea:

Is it possible to recite the oath of citizenship in front of the senate en-masse? And maybe get some reporters to report the event..

Another, letter campaign, in which people will sign on the oath and snail mail to WH and also local senators

These might bring attention to us.. but feel free to knock it down (or ignore) if sounds absurd

Dear All,

The idea about the oath is good. Most of us do great, creative things at work and earn the appreciation of our peers and seniors. Why not we brainstorm now, come with creative ideas to help ourselves?

Let us be open all new ideas. No idea is stupid!

Personally I would think of a mass satyaghraha but not sure now many will like it. It is a peaceful and well tried Gandian method to highlight our plight

GOD bless the EB community!

Guys the Satyagraha and Anthem are good ideas and can be implemented. There is no shortage of good ideas.
The shortage is of people who will participate and do things. Less than 50 have registered so far.

Of course you understand talking face to face with lawmakers in large numbers is the best way to convey our ideas. Why are we talking about mails when the goal of this thread is to meet them ?
