NEVCA Statement on Innovation, Immigration & Inclusion
We, the member firms of the New England Venture Capital Association in conjunction with our portfolio companies, feel compelled to speak out in defense of the profound value, quality of character, and central importance of the many bright, creative, and hard-working immigrants we are proud to count among the valued members of our innovation community.
When America falters in its founding resolve to remain a land of opportunity for them, it ceases to be a land of opportunity for us all.
Rather than make us safer, any policy which unnecessarily hinders their access to the land they love serves the enemies of freedom seeking to paint us as closed, unprincipled, and biased against the citizens of any nation, race, or religion otherwise united by the yearning to breathe free.
We’re not done yet. Stay tuned.
