WATCH NOW: How Communities of Faith Play a Critical Role in Improving Digital Equity

In case you missed it, Connect Americans Now (CAN) and Microsoft, in partnership with Values Partnerships, hosted a virtual roundtable with faith leaders and digital equity advocates to discuss the importance of completely eliminating the digital divide in every community — and the critical role communities of faith play in advocating for solutions to improve digital equity.

The panel included Jasmine Thomas, Senior Director of the Microsoft Airband Initiative, Dr. Fallon Wilson, Vice President of Policy at the Multicultural Media, Telecom and Internet Council (MMTC), and Jon Conradi, Outreach Director for CAN. The panel was moderated by Values Partnerships CEO Joshua DuBois.
