Join the Fight:

Close the Digital Divide in Your Community and Beyond

Image
You're here, so that means you either understand or have questions about how the lack of broadband access could be hurting you, your family, someone you know, or your community and state. It means losing out on educational opportunities, health care resources, job training and employment options, and a myriad of goods and services that can improve quality of life.

Connected Nation wants to arm you with the data, the programs, and the support you need so that, together, we can close the Digital Divide.

Below you'll find resources and information on ways to create change or support our efforts. If you have questions, download this short explainer or contact us at info@connectednation.org.

Everyone belongs in a Connected Nation.
