Entrepreneurs: Help Pass Immigration Reform by Joining the March for Innovation

By Jeremy Robbins

Over the past several weeks, the Partnership for a New American Economy, a bipartisan group of mayors and CEOs dedicated to sensible immigration reform, has seen an outpouring of supporters from all parts of the country, including tech leaders, entrepreneurs, immigrants and citizens alike. All of them have one goal: to fix this country's broken immigration system.

With the recent introduction of the comprehensive immigration reform bill in the Senate, we're one step closer to achieving our goals. Passing a bill through Congress isn't easy, though, and entrepreneurs and innovators can play a critical role in making it happen. That’s why we started the #iMarch for Innovation, the largest ever virtual march on Washington to make sure America's immigration system fosters innovation and entrepreneurship, not stifles it.

On May 22 and 23, we’re going to #iMarch for reform and we want you to join us! We’ll march to ensure that entrepreneurs can come to America and start businesses. We’ll march to ensure that American continues to recruit the talent it needs to out-innovate the rest of the world. And we’ll march to help the families, businesses, and individuals who are currently hurt by our outdated and outmoded immigration system.

Our campaign is a social campaign, and there are many ways to make a difference. But first you have to join. To join our campaign and make your voice heard, please visit marchforinnovation.com. Once you've signed up, we've got lots of ways you can get more involved. Visit marchforinnovation.com/act for more information - including sample content, widgets for websites, ways to share stories, and more.

Together, we can pass immigration reform and keep America competitive.
