On October 29th, the NH-based National Collaborative for Digital Equity is holding a day-long gathering to share some extraordinary breakthroughs in removing digital divide barriers for students in NH and their educators and families.
Come join us at St. Anselm College for the NH Summit on Digital Equity on October 29th: https://www.smore.com/s3bmz.
- We’re launching a nationally significant precedent to spur bank-supported investment in affordable broadband access across as many areas of the state as possible (see attached). Your voice would be welcomed and valuable!
- We’ve set the nation’s first precedent for using bank Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) funds to finance refurbishment and donation of computers for home use by lower-income students. Come help us launch the effort to encourage banks and employers statewide to donate and finance refurbishment of tens of thousands of recent used computers, equipped with lifetime warranties and Office 365.
- Join a pioneering effort we’re launching at the summit to equip interested future and current school librarians with the skills to use LibChat to provide chat-based support for students and their families who are enjoying home access to broadband and computers for the first time.
Please come help us shape a much more equitable future for our students.
