How to Participate in #DREAMerHack

Posted by on November 20, 2013.

We're just a few hours away from the start our DREAMer Hackathon! Later today, Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Drew Houston (Dropbox), Andrew Mason (Groupon), and Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn) will come together with DREAMers at LinkedIn headquarters in Silicon Valley for a hackathon to develop new technology to fight for immigration reform.

FWD.us supporters all across the country are invited to take part in the Hackathon by joining us virtually via livestream. We'll be broadcasting the opening program where technology leaders and DREAMers will speak on the importance of immigration reform, as well as the closing demonstrations and awards ceremony.

WATCH THE LIVESTREAM HERE 

Immigration reform supporters in major metropolitan areas are also invited to our #DREAMstream watch parties tonight in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Raleigh/Durham, and San Antonio.

We're teaming up with some wonderful folks in each city to bring you an exciting evening with technology and immigration reform movers and shakers. Each event will start off with a livestream of the hackathon's opening ceremony. Afterwards, Drew Houston, Andrew Mason, and other FWD.us founders will virtually join attendees for a Google Hangout live from the Hackathon floor!

It’s a great opportunity to meet other people who want to help pass reform, and to learn more about how you can be an effective advocate.
