We don't send politics-related emails around often, but this issue directly affects the future of this company and -- more broadly -- America's economy.
Right now, we're helping to lead the March for Innovation -- a virtual march on Washington to push the Senate to pass immigration reform. If you're willing, please take one moment and help us virtually "march."
I know you get lots of emails like this from other organizations, so let me spend a moment telling you why this and why now:
Why Immigration Reform?
Our immigration system is backwards and broken. It turns away talented innovators and entrepreneurs. Companies struggle to find the talent they need and get visas for those who can fill the gaps. Those with visas are prevented from pursuing great start-ups in America (and all the jobs they would create) out of fear they will lose their status. The system simply does not support growth in the American economy -- it holds us back. It's bad for our industry and it's bad for our economy.
There's never been a more pivotal time for us to flex our collective power and take action to pass immigration reform. The Senate has started markup on its comprehensive immigration bill and we expect debate in committee and on the Senate floor to start in just a matter of weeks. Now's the time for our voices to help push this bill over the top. By engaging your networks in our targeted states, you can help push key Senate votes in favor of immigration reform.
What can I do?
