Washington D.C. has recognized that Internet access is the first and most basic step to digital equity. In 2020, they launched “Internet For All” to work towards the Internet for All, beginning with students. This initiative moves past ideas and jumps into bringing the internet to those who need it the most fostering deep outcomes during a precious time.
But how did a municipality pivot and focus on this impactful program in under a year?
Join co:census and the CTO for Washington D.C. for an open conversation on the meaning of internet for all, the impact D.C. ‘s program has had, and how cities can drive outcomes for their residents who experience the digital divide.
