Silicon Valley Stands is not a political organization. We are open to every corner of the political spectrum, just as our group’s members represent every corner of the world, every nationality, every religion, ethnicity, gender, age and background. Just like Silicon Valley, we represent the full tapestry of this unique identity we all share: Americans.
This includes members of the American workforce from all industries and all categories: native‑born, naturalized, green card/visa holder, refugee and any other.
Our commonality is that we stand united to defend the founding principles and values of this country that we all love so dearly. The freedoms we enjoy in America have been earned through blood and sweat; and it is our duty to past generations of Americans, and the generations that will follow us, to be the guardians of those freedoms.
The Tech Industry holds a significant place in the US economy, and some of the largest contributions in our industry have been/are made by immigrants and the children of immigrants. Our goal is to harness the collective power of our industry (and all industries) to help protect essential freedoms for all people in this great nation.
“[Freedom] is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation.” - Ronald Reagan
“We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
1. Who can sign the letter?
Any worker from any US industry (or geographic region) can sign the letter.
