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.
These three teams meet at every FWDMonthly.
