7:30-8:00 Monthly Speaker | The Startup Government: Critical Partnerships Between Tech and Policy

We are excited to welcome City Councilman Chris Riley as the keynote speaker for our October FWDMonthly! Councilman Riley will discuss how the tech community can work with local government to solve urban issues, and take questions from the audience.

8:00-8:45 Breakout Sessions | The Democracy Project, The 2.0 Project, and The Co-Founders Project

Convene Project Teams and tackle challenges using your skill set.

All across the country, FWD.us has enlisted thousands from the tech community to communicate to lawmakers the urgent need for immigration reform. However, despite the overwhelming support for commonsense solutions, Congress has refused to act. In response, we are renewing our commitment to improve the political process by rallying the tech community to the cause.

To do this, each FWD.us regional chapter has launched 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.

These three teams meet at every FWDMonthly.
