*UNDERSTANDING DIGITIAL INCLUSION AND BROADBAND ADOPTION:  PERSPECTIVES
FROM PRACTIONERS, RESEARCHERS AND POLICY ADVOCATES*



You are invited to a staff luncheon discussion sponsored by Georgetown’s
Institute for Public Representation and the Benton Foundation in
cooperation with Senator Richard Blumenthal



Monday February 22, 2016 12:00pm – 1:30pm

SR-385

*Lunch will be provided*



Broadband is an essential resource for access to education, jobs, civic
participation, healthcare and culture.  However, to ensure the benefits of
broadband access reaches every American requires carefully crafted support
programs.  Our panelists explain the latest data and research on the state
of low-income broadband adoption, describe what it takes on the ground to
work with a low-income community to spur broadband adoption and highlight
efforts by government at the federal level to support digital inclusion and
broadband adoption.



Panelists include



John Horrigan of the Pew Research Center

Amina Fazlullah of the Benton Foundation

Casey Sorenson of PC’s for People

Angela Siefer of the National Digital Inclusion Alliance

Andy Schwartzman of Georgetown’s Institute for Public Representation

Sarah Morris of the Open Technology Institute of the New America Foundation
