Whether your focus is economic self-sufficiency, community change, health, or education, the Internet is changing the way you achieve your goals. As more information and services move online, people who are “digitally isolated” grow more excluded from opportunity and less connected to their communities. Although most American households are now online, a large minority – about 30 percent, including many whose members are poorer, less educated, and older – are not. Please join us for a conversation that explores how local foundations, working in partnership with government and the private sector, can successfully accelerate technology access and build capacity to bring isolated families and communities online.
