Digital equity is achievable
The late, great, Congressman John Lewis called digital equity “the civil rights issue of the 21st century.” Services, education, healthcare, work and governance are digitalizing. Yet 3.6 billion people remain offline, falling further behind just by staying where they are.
A catalytic combination of philanthropy and low-interest loans is needed to meet communities where they are, with the support they need, to ensure an equitable digital future for all. No single investment will connect the world alone — together, many will.
