Default From IV: We made a bold statement through this ad

Immigrationvoice raised the awareness about the rally and our cause through this ad in the Rollcall newspaper yesterday. Rollcall is read by staffers, lawmakers and a lot of people who deal with public policy, lobbying and politics on the hill.

We had a full page color ad on Sept 18th in the newspaper. This raised the profile of our issue and made a bold statement about us in DC. Thank you everyone for your support.

Here is a copy of the ad

Default more ads?

I don't know how much an ad in Rollcall is, but wouldn't it be possible to have ongoing ads to keep awareness level up? Especially if lawmakers read the publication. I would help to pay for an ad.

"Make employers to share immigration related paper work with employees" would sound good rather than "Allow employers to share immigration related paper work with employees" ... Perfect advertisement.

It is expensive to put an add in Roll-Call and The Hill. These two papers are read by everyone in Congress and in DC in general who make policy and write laws. Each fullpage ad costs thousands of dollars.

We spent this money because we wanted everyone in congressional offices to find out at their convenience what the rally is about and expecting that it would generate their interest in calling us and asking us what our issues and what the solutions are.

IF we have enough funds, then we will put more ads. Right now, we dont have a plan to put more ads in paper in the immediate future.

Default Like the idea of continuing the Ad

I like the idea of continuing the Ad. Willing to contribute for that. I suggest IV should come up with Fund raising drives for things such as Ads. This will keep us in the news. I am confident that with the Rally's success, we will be able to meet the funding drive targets.

I think people would be willing to pay for more of these ads! It is important that we do this before or during the time that the defense bill is put on the table. If we start a funding drive now, we can make it!

Put up a funny cartoon that shows our state and follow that up with the issues.

I privately know the cost, and I'm not sure if I should say in this forum, but it needs SERIOUS contributions to fund ads like this.

I am working on a Dilbert like cartoon that illustrates the problem and the bad side effects (more off shoring if we cannot stay).

So like the idea - pay the price.

How about doubling our regular monthly contributions.

thank you mbartosik for the dedication, i think if we can make atleast 100 from 23000 members to sign up for recurring, i think will have enough money for ads. atleast those 20000 members should understand by now what we are doing here.
