We are excited to be a member of the Digital Divide Work Group to connect Portland during the COVID-19 Crisis. This work group is focused on solving two problems:
- Many community members have limited or no internet access
- Frontline organizations need new digital tools to build community
The groups single priority is increasing digital inclusion for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities, individuals with disabilities, immigrants, women, or individuals experiencing poverty as well as other community members in isolation and at high risk of digital exclusion.
DONATIONS NEEDED! Accepting technology, connectivity or cash.
This work group is part of the Economic Impact and Intervention Task Force led by Mayor Wheeler, Commissioner Hardesty, and Prosper Portland.
