The Undivide Project focuses on undoing the so-called “Digital Divide” by working directly with communities. The first phase of our work will be directed towards understanding the impacts of digital divestment. We will offer bespoke solutions and implementation support reflective of community conditions. The next phase of the Undivide Project will focus on building community resilience to climate change using Internet tools. After that… we will let our community partners lead the way.
That the Internet and the benefits it can create should be accessible, equitable, green, and available to all.
We don’t “parachute” into neighborhoods to research, survey, and then leave. We commit to medium to long-term work with communities. We allow them to lead the way to solutions that are attuned to their needs. Our teams are inclusive, humble and to the best of our ability reflect the perspectives of those with whom we work.
Where we work
We started are doing direct service work in a small set of communities. One in a divested area of Washington, DC, a couple of sites in Virginia, and one in rural Louisiana. We do deep work to understand the needs of communities and offer a more informed view of how climate justice and digital divide issues collide in people’s lived experiences. Next, we will consider a variety of U.S. and global communities to continue our work around the digital divide, access, justice, and resilience.
