Digital Inclusion Town Hall Meeting - January 16, 2015

Organizers of the 2014 Kansas City Digital Inclusion Summit — a first-of-its-kind event addressing troublesome gaps in residents’ access to computers and the Internet — return three months after that daylong gathering to deliver their official report.

The October summit examined trends, discussed challenges and opportunities, spotlighted current inclusion efforts, and shared best practices. Since then civic leaders and other individuals and organizations have been exploring ways to bridge Kansas City's digital divide by providing better Internet access and quality tech education.

The town hall meeting also features an announcement of a new digital inclusion coalition and presentation of an action plan.

Co-presented by the Kansas City Digital Inclusion Coalition.
