Facebook's founder Mark Zuckerberg has launched an initiative to help the group of undocumented youth known as DREAMers.
According to Fox News Latino, Zuckerberg's immigration advocacy group Fwd.us are planning to host a "DREAMer Hackathon." DREAMers will have the opportunity to meet with several CEO's including Zuckerberg, the co-founder of Groupon and the founder of Dropbox at the event which is being held at LinkedIn headquarters in Mountain View, CA.
"There's been a lot of delay and too little action coming from Washington this month," Fwd.us President Joe Green told the Los Angeles Times.
"We hope that momentum coming from our hackathon — and the technology it creates — can help move immigration reform forward."
This is not the first time the 29-year-old Facebook founder has taken steps to help push for immigration reform. Last month he went to Capitol Hill to pressure members of Congress to pass a measure that would overhaul the current immigration laws.
Zuckerberg's DREAMer Hackathon will take place in November.
