Digital Inclusion Week Begins
Digital Inclusion Week, sponsored by the National Digital Inclusion Alliance, is an annual event meant to bring attention to solutions addressing home internet access, personal devices, and local technology training and support programs, with the goal of closing digital divides that exist in cities and local communities around the country. This year, Digital Inclusion Week is from October 7 to 11.
During Digital Inclusion Week, there are many ways to learn more about and raise awareness of digital equity issues that communities in California face:
