The Supreme Court recently handed down momentous decisions on same-sex marriage and Obamacare that many say reflect the nation's current views. DACA and DAPA could potentially be decided by the Supreme Court in the upcoming year (pending the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals). However, few court watchers would argue that the Court has fully joined us in the 21st century, especially with respect to embracing innovation and understanding the nuances of modern technology. Join us and Come to Terms: A Project of Fix the Court on Tuesday, July 28th at 7pm for a lively discussion on how to innovate the Supreme Court.

From Los Angeles 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.
