The United Church of Christ Office of Communication's Policy Advisor, Cheryl Leanza, wrote a powerful Medium piece just before attending the April 16, 2020 #Right2Connect online town hall. Read the entire post.
For people trying to stay home to “flatten the curve” of the pandemic, high-speed broadband could also mean the difference between life and death. More than 54 percent of people with incomes below $20,000 do not have access to the Internet from their homes.
If senior citizens or those with disabilities and chronic conditions most at risk of death from COVID-19 can stay home and access telehealth services, we can save lives. The more people who are able to stay home to work and learn, the faster our public health crisis will be over. But that is not possible if a household’s broadband connection is limited by data caps or slow speeds.
As we live our lives during this time of social distancing during CoVid-19 pandemic, our campaign to establish broadband access for everyone at every age, is more urgent than ever. Please support our work.
