We're excited to be partnering with Expert Dojo for this month's FWDMonthly! 

In celebration of a successful Immigrant Heritage Month, we will be getting together on Tuesday, June 30 at 7 pm at Expert Dojo in Santa Monica to highlight the incredible contributions of immigrant entrepreneurs in Los Angeles. Our guest speaker is Cameron Kashani, startup adviser at the Bixel Exchange and a successful immigrant entrepreneur; she founded Coloft, which was the first collaborative workspace in Santa Monica established at the beginning of the technology boom in Southern California.

Join us for food, drinks, lively conversation and an idea-thon focused on harnessing the energy and momentum from Immigrant Heritage Month to move the needle on immigration reform.

From San Francisco to Austin, Miami to New York, FWD.us has enlisted thousands from our community to roll up their 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.

Each FWD.us regional chapter has three project teams: The Democracy Project, The 2.0 Project, and The Co-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 come to our FWDMonthlies and spark your interest in tech-driven advocacy.
