FWD.us chapters are the central home for everything that we do—building networks, innovating advocacy, and sharing stories. We bring together passionate, talented people, and offer opportunities to engage in innovative advocacy that educates elected decision makers and changes the terms of public debate.
From San Francisco to Austin, Boston to New York, FWD.us has enlisted thousands to roll up our sleeves, get engaged, and communicate to lawmakers the urgent need for immigration reform. Join our vibrant community by joining your local chapter. FWDMonthly is our local chapter meeting held once a month to explore the intersection of tech and politics and engage in advocacy—both in doing and in innovating how it’s done.
The backbone of the local FWD.us chapter is its membership. Our membership program brings together dedicated supporters in a political accelerator that offers FWD.us resources and guidance to fuel advocacy and engagement. Members, part of at least one project team, meet once a month with their local chapter at FWDMonthly to solve a specific challenge.
Contact representatives in Congress about immigration reform by sending compelling stories about our broken immigration system, urging them to take a vote on legislation, and joining advocacy events in your community.
Apply to be an Ambassador in your local chapter, and help us grow our membership and advocacy efforts. Ambassadors work closely with FWD.us staff on running FWDMonthly and help build a vibrant community.
Work on the FWD.us online advocacy tools with a team of in-house engineers and volunteer coders. Join a team of problem solvers and strategists who want to use their specialized skills to shape the national narrative on critical political issues in local chapter areas.
Contribute your financial and social capital to the cause. Mark Zuckerberg will match any contributions of at least $35. Help share the knowledge and current issues around immigration reform with your personal networks.
