Are you looking for a way to get involved in Social Innovation? Each month, FWD hosts guest speakers and recruits social innovators. And we hope you can join us...
At our next FWD.us LA Chapter event on Tue. September 29 we are hosting an Immigrant Entrepreneur Pitchfest + Happy Hour at Kolabs. It will be a great event to meet our chapter members and find out some of the projects they are working on. We will hear pitches from the companies below (more to be confirmed):
Like Immigration Reform, Social Innovation are the key issues of the day that require your advocacy to make positive change. Do you want to meet other social changemakers in the LA Tech community? Do you want to lead a project that can help solve some of our city's most pressing issues? You can affect national and local policy with FWD.us.
Join us Tue, September 29 to learn how we are recruiting advocates to support FWD/LA in issues in Immigration and beyond.
If you have any questions about the FWD.us LA Chapter or the event, feel free to reach out to Josh (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Hope you can make it!

Help foreign entrepreneurs obtain a start up visa
We're also excited to tell you we have been working on in partnership with the White House. This will provide immigration options for inventors, researchers, and entrepreneurs who want to build businesses in the US as well as clarify criteria for foreign entrepreneurs to qualify for either a temporary visa or a green card. You can sign onto the petition here.
