The Boston Chapter is getting together in Cambridge on 2/24 and we’d love to have you join us!
We have a thriving technology community here in Boston. This community is changing the way we do everything, from how we shop, to how we meet new people, and find things to do. Our country is changing quickly due to the introduction and common use of new technologies and this same vigorous change is now being applied to shake up politics.
At this FWDmonthly, we will discuss how technology is reimagining our communities and the initiatives we can support to push innovation and growth here in Massachusetts. Many of our chapter members are working on local and national initiatives to change our communities for the better. With originality and ingenuity, our chapter will mobilize this city to have a stake in the conversation and to become civic advocates.
Get your friends/colleagues together and strengthen your community together.

From San Francisco to Austin, Miami to New York, FWD.us has enlisted thousands from our community to roll up our sleeves, get engaged, and communicate to lawmakers the urgent need for immigration reform. Despite the overwhelming public support for commonsense solutions, Congress has refused to act, so we at FWD.us are renewing our commitment to improve the political process by rallying the tech community to the cause.
To do this, each FWD.us regional chapter will launch three projects this fall: The Democracy Project, The 2.0 Project, and TheCo-Founders Project. We are committing our resources to these local chapters, which will serve as accelerators for political advocacy.
The Democracy Project: A team of innovators focused on developing new and creative strategies to engage in advocacy.
The 2.0 Project: A team of problem solvers and strategists who want to use their specialized skills to shape the national narrative on critical political issues.
The Co-Founders Project: A team of donors and volunteers who drive our quarterly ThinkFWD events that provoke discussion at the critical intersection of politics and technology.
Join any of these teams. Chapters will be the central home for everything we do in tech and politics, so visit our FWDMonthlies to join your local chapter’s expansion and renew your commitment to tech-driven political reform.
