Virtual Event

Unprecedented federal and state funding programs have changed broadband possibilities for communities nationwide. In Baltimore, a city where almost one and three residents face barriers to reliable, high-speed connectivity, broadband investments could help to revitalize communities that have been overlooked or excluded from the digital economy.

A conversation with local leaders who are developing ways to bring digital opportunities within reach for every Baltimore resident and the community organizers that make connectivity goals a reality. Speakers include:

  • Jason Hardebeck, Mayor’s Office of Broadband and Digital Equity
  • Dr. Colin Rhinesmith, Founder and Director, Digital Equity Research Center
  • Wiliam Wells, Executive Director and Founder, aSTEAM Village and Digital KC Now
