The Story of FWD.us

Once upon a time, Mark Zuckerberg publicly joined the movement for comprehensive immigration reform, and progressives everywhere were very excited.

And when he, Yahoo!’s Marissa Mayer, and other leaders in the tech community launched their organization, FWD.us, to promote immigration reform, progressives got even more excited.

But then things started getting a little strange, and progressives everywhere started questioning their excitement about FWD.us.

image

Then their confusion turned to concern, and for good reason.

The media learned that Mark Zuckerberg and FWD.us were funding ads for Senators Lindsey Graham and Mark Begich.

But these weren’t just any ads. They were ads promoting the dirty Keystone XL pipeline and oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

So progressive groups teamed up to fight back against FWD.us’s cynical power play.

And their teamwork paid off. Two co-founders of FWD.us, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk and Yammer’s David Sacks, left the organization.

But progressives aren’t stopping there. They’re calling for another major FWD.us collaborator, Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer, to resign from the group as well.

So do the right thing, Marissa. Listen to progressives, and Olivia Pope.

Call Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer today and ask her to resign from FWD.us.

And then Hillary Clinton caught wind of Marissa Mayer’s partnership with FWD.us…

Marissa Mayer is a co-founder of FWD.us? Say what?!

Marissa Mayer: From us to you (and, please don’t ruin Tumblr).

We’d like this Yahoo! gif better, and do this dance, if Marissa Mayer dropped FWD.us.

Say what?! Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer just bought Tumblr. Mayer is also a co-founder of Mark Zuckerberg's political group FWD.us, which used a cynical strategy to run dirty Keystone XL and Arctic drilling ads. Join CREDO and Progressives United by telling Mayer to do the right thing and drop Mark Zuckerberg's FWD.us.
