Working Together to Close the Digital Divide
San Francisco is known around the world as a hub of technological innovation and home to some of the biggest names in technology. Yet we’re also home to tens of thousands of seniors and people with disabilities who remain on the other side of the digital divide – with no access to the online information and technology that most of us can’t imagine life without.
In response to this challenge, CLC helped launch the San Francisco Tech Council in 2015.
This multi-stakeholder effort to improve access for older adults and people with disabilities is the first collaboration of its kind in the nation and seeks to be a model of digital inclusivity for all cities.
Together, leaders from the technology and business communities, city agencies, community-based organizations, philanthropy, academia, and healthcare are forwarding a bold, shared agenda in support of digital access for all – and building a stronger city as a result.
The SF Tech Council is funded by the City of San Francisco and coordinated by Community Living Campaign.
