STRIVING FOR DIGITAL EQUITY
A report on the challenges and opportunities the Digital Divide presents to Essex County.
The COVID-19 pandemic has intensified the Digital Divide in Essex County as residents have been forced to transition their lives online.
To better understand these challenges and explore real opportunities for equity, ECCF partnered with the Center for State Policy Analysis at Tisch College, Tufts University, to produce a baseline analysis of how the Digital Divide impacts each of Essex County’s 34 cities and towns.
On Tuesday, October 20, the data was presented to almost 200 cross-sector community leaders to spark the conversations needed to address this most critical topic.
