Technology / Broadband Latinos and Digital Literacy in the Age of Technology and COVID-19

Sponsor: COMCAST

Black and Brown communities still face real and lasting barriers that hinder their access to broadband technology. They often lack the digital literacy skills required to protect themselves from a broad range of harms as a result of new technological advances. These include discrimination in employment, data breaches, and loss of control over sensitive personal information. Knowledge is power and nowhere is this more true than in the context of technology.
