What is Digital Inclusion Week?
Digital Inclusion Week is an annual campaign that recognizes the importance of Digital Inclusion from coast to coast. Next Century Cities is proud to join our national allies in recognizing our members, local digital inclusion organizations, and advocates that work daily to ensure every person receives the tools for digital success.
The celebration of digital inclusion runs from October 4-8 across our website, partner websites, and all social media channels. We hope you will learn more about the campaign here and engage with us on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
