Connecting our community with access to internet for low-income families in South LA

 

a digital divide crisis

Our South LA community has been disproportionately impacted by COVID

South LA students are 3 times less likely to keep up with their school curriculum due to either poor or no internet connectivity than students in other parts of LA county. Families who have received hotspots through school programs state very slow internet speeds and limited bandwidth to support multiple kids in the family with distance learning.

42%

Report having no or inadequate access to the internet to meet their child's distance learning needs, forcing their children to do school work on cell phones or in retail parking lots
