The Digital Inclusion and Access Taskforce is a community-based, community-led group focused on digital equity. No one should be excluded from the benefits of technology. By tackling systemic barriers based on race, ethnicity, income, and geography, we can give everyone the means to succeed in today’s digital society. 
So much of life happens online. People who are not able to access digital resources are excluded from the basic opportunities available to others. Our goal is to make sure that these opportunities are open to all residents. This includes new Americans, unemployed, underemployed, poor and working class Nashvillians, people who were formerly incarcerated, older adults, the medically fragile, and all the racial and ethnic communities represented in our city. Nashville’s diversity and growth are supported when we make sure that everyone has what they need to thrive here.
We believe that technology should be affordable, accessible, and inclusive. Everyone deserves quality, reliable Internet access. Everyone has the right to receive training and support to help them use the technology that is available. Everyone should be empowered with awareness of and access to the digital resources they need to succeed in modern life.
Our work is powered by the Digital Inclusion and Access Taskforce, organized and led by Dr. Fallon Wilson and Dr. Samantha Perez. Our efforts are guided by an advisory group made up of local leaders from various sectors.
