(CNA)-The 28-year-old Facebook chief executive is in the process of co-organizing a political advocacy group made up of top technology leaders that would push federal legislative reform on issues ranging from immigration to education, said people familiar with the development, The Wall Street Journal reports.
Mr. Zuckerberg is working on launching the group along with close friend Joe Green, who was one of the CEO’s Harvard University roommates. The group is expected to be formally announced in the next few weeks.
The group, which so far doesn’t have a name, is aiming to raise roughly $50 million and has already secured commitments in the tens of millions of dollars from Mr. Zuckerberg and more than a dozen other tech executives including LinkedIn Corp.
