The gate of entry to Digital Access is through a device. If members of society lack devices, the digital divide will perpetuate. Devices have become essential to Education, Theater, Arts, Culture, Civic Engagement, Democracy, Advocacy, Climate, Health and Wellness, Workforce, Vital Services, Government Services, Financial Services, Economic Competitiveness, Supporting Underserved and Underrepresented Populations, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and more. While funders continue to invest in organizations that give away free, new or refurbished machines, or sell devices at a low cost to those in need, the need for devices still disproportionately outweighs resources available to people, organizations, and communities.
