  1. Collecting accurate neighborhood-level data on technology and internet access.
  2. Building and supporting neighborhood technology hubs by investing in trusted community centers to grow technology resources.
  3. Empowering residents to become digital literacy ambassadors in their respective neighborhoods.
  4. Coordinating city-wide fundraising and public advocacy for systemic change in digital inclusion.
