Building for Digital Equity: Chapter 2 Claiming Broadband For Your Community

June 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Join ILSR & NDIA for chapter 2 of the Building For Digital Equity series. We will be discussing organizing for broadband in communities.

In the first Building for Digital Equity event we discussed the new policies and funding options available that can be applied at the state and local levels to help communities improve their Internet services. This time we will be focusing on organizing around broadband, community impact of the federal funding, and new initiatives in progress thanks to the grants communities are taking advantage of.

Join us on Wednesday June 29th from 1:00pm-2:15pm ET as the Institute for Local Self Reliance and the National Digital Inclusion Alliance discuss what’s happening on the ground in these communities and what some of them are planning to do with the new federal broadband dollars. We are calling it:
