Leadership ChangeShare on Twitter Share on Facebook
Over the last year and a half, FWD.us has been instrumental in leading the fight for comprehensive immigration reform in D.C., and all of you, as our supporters, partners, and volunteers, made that possible. Today, we wanted to share an important change with you.
Effective immediately, Joe Green has resigned as President of FWD.us, and Executive Director Todd Schulte will be taking over the leadership role of the organization as acting President. While FWD.us has achieved important milestones in the fight to reform immigration laws, Joe and the Board agreed a change in leadership was necessary.
Todd has been with FWD.us since June 2013, and has been instrumental in building the case for immigration reform in DC. His prior experience as Chief of Staff at Priorities USA, the Super PAC supporting President Obama's re-election, will ensure FWD.us continues its momentum for reform. Todd will continue to work closely with Rob Jesmer, who will remain FWD.us’ Campaign Manager, and with the rest of the excellent senior staff and team.
“As the mid-term elections approach, the fight for immigration reform is more important than ever,” said Schulte. “FWD.us remains on the right track to continue all the great work that our supporters, employees, partners and volunteers have made possible, and we’re excited about our future.”
We’re going to stay focused on our mission of mobilizing the tech community in support of policies that keep the American Dream achievable in the 21st century, starting with comprehensive immigration reform.
Thank you, as always, for your support in this important effort to urge Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
