Reymon LaChaux, Digital Equity Manager at MOHCD:

“Without high-speed internet access at home, students can’t complete schoolwork outside the classroom, and households can’t work remotely, access healthcare, job training, the social safety net, or critical government services.”

“Ensuring that San Franciscans have equitable access to high quality, reliable, and affordable internet is the first step to bridging the digital divide.”

San Francisco Public Library

San Francisco Public Library
