NYC Apps is Co-Sponsoring this week's FWD.us event in Manhattan.
FWD.us is an organization started by key leaders in the tech community to promote policies to keep the United States and its citizens competitive in a global economy—including comprehensive immigration reform and education reform.
On November 20th, Mark Zuckerberg, Drew Houston, Andrew Mason and Reid Hoffman will come together with DREAMers at LinkedIn HQ for a hackathon to develop new technology to fight for immigration reform. Here in New York, we will organize a partnership party to support the DREAMers and represent the city's fight for reform.
The live stream of the hackathon's opening ceremony begins at 6:30 p.m. EST. After the ceremony, FWD.us will present its organizing plans for NYC and entrepreneurs will share impressions from their recent meetings with lawmakers in D.C. Most importantly, throughout the event, attendees will be asked to share their stories and reasons for supporting immigration reform on social media.
