Bridging the Digital Divide for Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin Counties to Promote Equitable Participation
A Call to Action
The lack of digital equity in our region, in our state, and in our nation is a problem for all of us. We all suffer no matter whether we are a parent, student, business owner, government official, retired older adult, recent immigrant, educator, or community leader—digital equity concerns us all. In 2021, being able to effectively use the internet—whatever the reason—is a requirement for participating in society. Otherwise people get left behind. There are digital haves and have nots.
