NUIFC Digital Divide Survey
Greetings from AIHFS,
We work hard every day to provide our community with the health, social, and educational resources necessary to live and succeed today. As part of that, we see people all the time who face significant challenges. And we do everything we can to help them and strengthen our community. Sometimes that means addressing their health needs, or providing after school programs for our youth, but today it means fighting for their access to technology and the internet.
Our organization is partnering with the National Urban Indian Family Coalition (NUIFC) on the first-ever national survey focusing on how the digital divide affects Native Americans living in urban population centers. The digital divide refers to the fact that 25% of households in America don’t currently have internet access. With so many resources available online, this is simply unacceptable.
Will you support our efforts by responding to this short survey? (found here: http://v2.decipherinc.com/survey/selfserve/1ff2/g134/180209 )
Thank you for your participation and for all that you mean to our community.
