FWD.us invites you to join leaders in tech, politics and policy for our #ThinkFWD chapter launch in Chicago -- an interactive event about tech disrupting immigration advocacy. Immigration is an economic growth engine and the source of so much of what makes Chicago a unique city. Regions across the nation are developing their own strategies to be more welcoming to immigrants. At the launch of #ThinkFWD Chicago, we want to ask: How can we bring tech and politics together to welcome immigrants from around the world? How can we equip Chicagoland to attract the best and brightest?

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; the panel will begin at 7.

Discussion Leaders:

  • The Honorable Bill Foster, Member of Congress, IL-11
  • Tonantzin Carmona, Director, Office of New Americans - City of Chicago
  • David Yoon, Director of Engineering, FWD.us
  • Ujjwal Gupta, Co-founder and CTO, Benchprep
  • Lisa Conn, National Organizing Director, FWD.us
