Congressional Hearing Initiative (CHI) - Status
The Congressional Hearing Initiative (CHI) will formally launch on November 5. The DVDs will be shipped on November 1. A substantial media blitz will begin on or about October 29. A tweet/email storm will be directed from PRG's Fax on Washington website. Approaches to the appropriate congressional committee members' offices will begin on or around November 10. The goal is to obtain a commitment to hold congressional hearings by January 31 and actual hearings sometime in February of 2015.. 

Key to the success of the most comprehensive effort ever to get full hearings for the scores of military/agency/political witnesses ready to testify will be the amount and depth of the media coverage throughout - particularly mainstream news talk shows. Professional, inside Washington press consulting is essential to this outcome, and that is expensive.
For those with resources who strongly believe the formal acknowledgement of the ET presence must happen now, this is the time to step forward. The amount needed to maximize this initiative is not great and could mean the difference between success and failure. Want to make history?  Contact:
Heber, AZ Conference - November 7-9
Developments of Interest
Another fear based movie centered on an alien abduction theme will soon previere in October. More are on the way.  Meanwhile a contactee subculture is slowly developing in many countries. Contactee groups are providing mutual support, holding conferences, setting up websites and dealing with their circumstances as best they can at a time when their own government denies their experiences are real. Between the government and Hollywood, this is a tough time to be a contactee.
