The COVID-19 pandemic has shown how important access to technology is in communities across America. From learning at home, to connecting with doctors, to video calls with loved ones, technology is keeping Americans connected.

On September 17, 2020, local community leaders from Baltimore, MD, Newark, NJ, and Washington, DC, discussed how their communities are leveraging technology to help manage the challenges of the pandemic, the role that it will play in addressing issues of social and racial justice, and how it could transform the ways we live and work.
