From San Francisco to Austin, Miami to New York, FWD.us has enlisted thousands from the tech community to roll up our sleeves, get engaged, and communicate to lawmakers the urgent need for immigration reform. Despite overwhelming public support for commonsense solutions, Congress has refused to act. But we at FWD.us are determined to win this fight. In fact we are just getting started.
This Fall, our FWD Silicon Valley Chapter will launch three projects: 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 with elected decision makers.
• 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 organize discussions on tech and politics at quarterly ThinkFWD events.
Join any of these teams. FWD.us Chapters will be the central home for everything we do in tech and politics, so visit our FWDMonthly and renew your commitment to tech-driven political reform.
