Broadband access is about more than the internet. It’s an issue of systemic equality. For communities living without broadband, the pandemic has only exposed and exacerbated an already growing digital divide – placing critical resources like telework, virtual learning, telehealth, and even vaccine access completely out of reach for millions across the country.
The deepest rift in this digital divide is when it comes to race: People without broadband access are disproportionately Black, Latinx, Indigenous, rural, or low-income. The Accessible, Affordable Internet for All (AAIA) Act can help bridge this gap and expand broadband access to unserved communities nationwide: Tell your Member of Congress to support this critical legislation today.
