Advocating for Digital Inclusion with Policy Makers

Policy makers are increasingly interested in the benefits of technology and broadband access for their communities.  Digital inclusion practitioners represent a unique perspective because they are working on the ground.  This webinar provides an overview of how digital inclusion practitioners can advocate for digital inclusion policies on behalf of their own organization before local, state, and federal government.
