Our story began last summer when we came together at Debug DC: Growth Hack for Immigration Reform co-hosted by FWD.us and Hackers & Founders at RackSpace in San Francisco, CA. The purpose of the Hackathon was to encourage political action to help reform the broken American immigration system. During the event, we leveraged our coding skills and growth hacking strategies to drive constituents to contact key leaders in Congress in support of a comprehensive immigration reform.
After 24 hours of coding, our team created Text4Reform -- a text-messaging tool to send personalized letters to Congress in support of immigration reform. Our team won several prizes including meetings with Craig Newmark (craiglist/craigconnects founder) and Padmasree Warrior (Cisco CTO).
This was the second time the three of us participated in a Hackathon for immigration reform. Last November, we had the honor to participate at the FWD.us DREAMer Hackathon hosted at LinkedIn HQ. Though in separate teams, we received one-on-one guidance and product critiques from Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook founder & CEO), Drew Houston (Dropbox founder & CEO), Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn co-founder), Andrew Mason (Groupon co-founder), Joe Green (FWD.us founder), and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas (Define American founder). It has been a life changing experience getting to work closely with top leaders, innovators, engineers, and UX designers from Silicon Valley.
