Save The Date: Next B4DE Event Will Focus On Pathways To Affordable Connectivity

Building for Digital Equity

With the end of the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) upon us, digital inclusion practitioners are encouraged to save the date for the second Building for Digital Equity (#B4DE) event of the year.

The popular (and free) virtual gathering – co-hosted by Institute for Local Self Reliance (ILSR) Community Broadband Networks Initiative and the National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA) – will be held on June 10, 2024 from 3 to 4:15 PM ET.

Coming on the heels of our last B4DE event in March, the theme for this installment will be “Pathways to Affordable Connectivity.”

It will feature an informative agenda that focuses on what digital equity advocates across the nation are doing to address broadband affordability and the pressing need for creating sustainable solutions for communities. 

You can register for the event here.

As with the previous #B4DE events, the June live stream will once again be sponsored by UTOPIA Fiber and co-hosted by NDIA’s Pamela Rosales and ILSR’s Community Broadband Networks Initiative Director Christopher Mitchell.

The livestream will be available (and later archived) on Facebook, YouTube, X (formerly Twitter), and LinkedIn with live viewer questions answered by the invited speakers and presenters.

We recommend viewing it on YouTube where the live chat will be most engaging. Other questions can be submitted using the #B4DE hashtag on X.

In the meantime, don't forget to check out our brand new season of the Building for Digital Equity podcast, which features short interviews with folks doing the frontline work to expand Internet access, address affordability, and help provide the digital skills and devices necessary to fully participate in a digital world.
