STRIVING FOR DIGITAL EQUITY – A report on the challenges and opportunities the Digital Divide presents to Essex County

Tuesday, October 20, 2020 | 9:00 – 10:30 am – RSVP by October 16

The COVID-19 pandemic has intensified the Digital Divide in Essex County as residents have been forced to transition their lives online. Suddenly, education, healthcare, employment, and other critical services are unreachable for those without the means or ability to shift to a fully digital world.

To better understand these challenges and explore real opportunities for equity, ECCF partnered with the Center for State Policy Analysis at Tisch College, Tufts University to produce a baseline analysis of how the Digital Divide impacts each of Essex County’s 34 cities and towns.

YOU ARE INVITED to join ECCF and other local community leaders for a Zoom presentation of the Digital Divide data and learnings.

Explore the data and key findings that emerged from the report.

  • Share real opportunities for change and action.
  • Spark conversations critical to taking steps toward digital equity.

YOU ARE A CRITICAL VOICE IN THIS CONVERSATION.
