Dear All concerned Pakistanis living in the USA:

A group of various organizations and individuals have come forward to arrange an advocacy day on the hill on Wednesday, Dec 5th, 2007. The room has been booked through Zafar Iqbal of ANAA.

Although the congress is in recess and it is a religious Jewish holiday, many lawmakers will be in town for regular business. The offices of all the lawmakers are open on that day.

If you are interested in participating in this event, please let us know if you can contribute in one of the three ways. ie financially, bringing yourself and others to the event to show support to the cause, and most important, by bringing in your congressman or his/her staff to the event.

All those who help the event in any of the three above mentioned ways will be listed as the sponsors of the event. The podium time will be allotted to the elected US representatives only. The sponsors who bring in the elected representatives will have the privilege to introduce them. No other speakers will be entertained.
