Announcing Push4ReformShare on Twitter Share on Facebook
Today we are proud to announce the launch of the newest advocacy tool from FWD.us -- Push4Reform.
The Push4Reform app came out of our DREAMer Hackathon in Silicon Valley late last year. At that event, 20 inspiring, talented DREAMers coded and designed products to advocate for immigration reform. It was inspiring to see what the DREAMers accomplished.
Push4Reform makes it easy for you to make a direct impact in the campaign for immigration reform, and keeps you updated on what’s happening in the movement.
You simply enter your zip code, and Push4Reform clearly explains where your representatives stand on immigration reform. We then make it easy to communicate with them through phone, Facebook, Twitter or even a physical letter. You can thank them if they publicly support reform, or encourage them to speak out if they have not yet taken a position.
Push4Reform won “Best Advocacy” at the Hackathon, and it’s easy to see why once you try it. The team, comprised of DREAMers Luis Aguilar, Kent Tam, and Justino Mora, created the idea and the design.
For the past few months, we've been working with members of the FWD.us Code Squad -- including Caitlin Winner, Jay Zalowitz, Kartik Mandaville, Volkan Unsal, and Shrav Mehta -- to get it ready to launch.
This is the perfect time to learn more about your representatives. Congress just came back into session for 2014, and immigration reform is going to be a huge issue in the coming months.
Once you use the new app, we’ll keep you posted on the most important updates for your representative, and the overall campaign for reform. If a key representative changes his or her stance, you’ll be the first to know.
We’ll continue to improve Push4Reform in the coming weeks, so be sure to check back and see what’s new.
