Alliance for Digital Equity

Working toward equity in a period of transformation

Having digital equity means that all people have access to the skills, computer equipment, and reliable high-speed internet needed to operate in the digital world.

Digital equity is necessary for people to fully participate in modern society. It plays a vital role as part of overall personal and community equity because all major parts of life—including health, housing, food, education, employment, child care, banking, transportation, and civic engagement—have gone online. As society becomes more and more reliant on technology, the importance of digital equity increases.

The Alliance for Digital Equity is a Western Massachusetts based coalition of community-focused organizations working toward digital equity for all people. Simply put, in an era where everything is done online, we don’t want anyone to be left behind.
