Silicon Valley Chapter

About Our Chapter

The heart of the tech industry, Silicon Valley is home to many of the world’s largest technology corporations as well as countless startups. With so many innovative companies in need of highly skilled workers and talented engineers, this region is no stranger to the plight of immigrants who want nothing more than to contribute to our country and call it home.

FWD.us is proud to represent those voices and to bring renewed awareness to what immigration reform means for our industries, businesses, communities, and our families.
