The Digital Inclusion Program of the City of Austin recently launched the Digital Empowerment Community of Austin (DECA), a cohesive network of organizations and stakeholders working to provide access to technology in our community. On Thursday, October 29 more than 80 community stakeholders from nonprofits, government, private companies, the academic community and more convened at the Asian American Resource Center to collaborate and brainstorm on challenges and opportunities in connecting our community.
DECA will meet regularly via a Working Group over the next year and will stay connected through a web-based platform currently under development, DigitalATX.org. Contact the digital inclusion team today to learn more about how your can join the Digital Empowerment Community of Austin.
