Default nominating gsc999, franklin, arunantonio:)

I would love to do it, but as far as my own story... it is probably not as compelling as someone who waited for 5 years, unless you felt otherwise after watching my video.

That said, gsc999, franklin, arunantonio (all Nor-Cal IV'tes) have been active on this front (and doing it very well), so I whole heartedly recommend their names!

Default some thoughts

I will be out of the country in a couple of days and wont be back for 3 weeks so I can't do it - I do't have a compelling story either. But whoever speaks to the media please educate yourself on the history of immigration and keep some pertinent facts handy- even (and especially) the obvious ones like - 'legal' immigration in the true and fair sense of the word didn't begin until the 60's when overt racial barriers were dismantled but covert ones began with national quotas. And the amount of scrutiny that the current bunch of immigrants go thru is unprecedented -for eg; prove that no American was discriminated against while being hired on H1b and go thru the same friggin procedure all over again for GC all the while bearing the downside of all the associated risks. Also, as the current backlog situation heavily discriminates against Indians, it'd seem fair to talk about how ugly and demeaning the current process is from an Indian perspective but i'd suggest/plead to refrain from doing so since immigrants from other countries as well like China too go thru hell. And I'd also suggest IV to come up with some sort of a pledge for its members making sure they dont turn anti-immigrant the moment they recive their GC's!

Thumbs up Interested in talking to reporters?

We will have a lot of media interest in the Washington DC rally. Many times, the journalists want to talk about the local angle to such national events, so they will want to quote a rally participant from their region.

For example, during the flower campaign, I had a lot of reporters call me with requests like, "I'd like to speak to someone from the Miami-Dade county".

This time, we want to be more organized in advance and have a database of people from various locations who are participating in the rally ready beforehand.

So if you are interested in representing your issues and IV to reporters from various media organizations please let me know by sending an email at english.august.in@gmail.com.

Please include your full name, your location (city, state) and your phone number (preferably cell #). Please make sure that the subject of your email is "Available for interview".
