Pro Bono Net Shares Blog Series on the Digital Divide

We are happy to share this 3-part blog-series from our colleagues at Pro Bono Net, exploring the digital divide. Pro Bono Net's Legal Content and Network Support Assistant, Josh Waldman, researched and authored this 3-part series on PBN's blog, Connecting Justice Communities. 

Part 1 examines how the pandemic has exacerbated the digital divide. Part 2 outlines the current and pending policy proposals to help close the digital divide, including investment in the CARES Act and other legislation. Part 3 discusses some of PBN's past and ongoing work to address digital access and equity issues in our programs and products. 

Part 1: COVID-19 Deepens the Digital Divide

Part 2: The Policy Landscape for Closing the Digital Divide 

Part 3: Pro Bono Net's Work on Digital Equity

We hope you find these resources helpful, and we thank our colleagues at Pro Bono Net for sharing this information!
