• The Emergency Broadband Benefit Can Transform AAPI Communities

    September 27, 2021

    Over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare just how critical broadband access is to our everyday lives. This is especially true for Asian, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities.

Without reliable, high-speed internet access, accessing unemployment benefits, online learning, or healthcare becomes all the more out of reach. The digital divide in our communities is clearer now than ever before, and we cannot ignore the gap any longer.
