rising together main event
On June 10, ECCF and nearly 500 community members came together to virtually celebrate the hope, resilience and collaboration that emerged in our communities through the COVID-19 crisis.

At the conclusion of the Rising Together Main Event, there was a live Zoom session revealing the details of ECCF’s $2 million dollar plan to advance digital equity in Essex County.
During the pandemic, the consequences of longtime digital inequities increased exponentially when nearly every aspect of our lives went virtual. Thousands of people in our region couldn’t learn or work from home. They couldn’t connect to telehealth appointments or apply for critical federal benefits. They were unable to look for jobs, connect with loved ones or access basic information, a task that many of us take for granted.
Incase you missed the virtual celebration or the live digital equity Zoom session, please see videos from the event linked below. More videos from the event can be found here.
