Race and Digital Inequity: The Impact on Poor Communities of Color
Time & Location
About the Event
Digital inequity continues to perpetuate intergenerational poverty among poor communities of color by disenfranchising them, limiting their access to health care and education, and stifling economic opportunity and growth. Black and Latino students are 30 to 40 percent more likely to have limited access to the internet, while 68 percent of Americans living on rural tribal lands don’t have access to broadband.
Join the Michelson 20MM Foundation, the California Community Foundation, Silicon Valley Community Foundation and Southern California Grantmakers for their next Connecting California event, "Race and Digital Inequity: The Impact on Poor Communities of Color." The program will feature extraordinary digital equity leaders who will explore the intersectionality of the digital divide and the racism entrenched in this issue.
