Help us create a better, more connected District: Sign and share our pledge today https://buff.ly/3hpyeMI
What is Digital Equity? Digital Equity is simply making sure that everyone-regardless of income, race, neighborhood, and age has access to the Internet and devices and knows how to use them.
We believe that technology should be a right, not a privilege. Will you help us ensure that all DC residents have fair access to digital tools and education?
