Need more people from tri-state area, specially NJ and also from Florida.

Please refer to this post on how to indicate your availability.

Guys,

"You have gone through as what other millions have gone through" still can be the base (And in my opinion that is THE BASE) for compelling reason to act. Come out openly without any fear with your stories.

Thanks.

Please come forward with your stories. We need to add a personal touch in our campaign with all of the personal trials and tribulations we face along the path to a Green card.

Waiting to hear from all of you.

Default Suggestions for speakers

Hi there,
I'll be more than happy to speak with reporters and broadcasters. I am public relations trained and if you'd like to reach me, call me at xxx xxxx xxxx (added to your profile- Admin). Let's chat.

Extraordinary immigration situations are great - but if we choose those experiences - we'll come across as sensationalists. We need to tell a well-spoken, true story which is the middle of the road - depicting ALL of our issues.

One thing that Americans don't identify with us is because they have an entirely disconnected view of the highly-skilled immigrant. We need to speak to their media, like them - so they are able to empathize with us and lend their voices to our cause.

And again, I'm more than happy to be the voice representing this community that I'm a part of, on the radio, in newspapers - wherever.

Sincerely,
Sweta from SF.

Default I'll talk

I have already been interviewed by several media outlets in Los Angeles and in San Diego. Although I am not a PR professional, I have some media training and love to make people understand what is wrong with the system.

I have been in an hour-long panel with immigration professionals as well as interviewed at a public hearing on immigration in San Diego. The other way I contribute is by calling my Congressman and Senators every time an opportunity arises. People who I've encountered are in disbelief that after 14+ years legally in this country I still have to keep waiting for a GC, even though my undergrad and grad degrees are from U.S. universities.

I am ready to speak anytime, just let me know.
