About this event

About 7.4 million people, 1 in 4 Texans, do not have access to high-speed internet service at home, according to a recent study. That translates to 3 in 10 households. The lack of free public service in San Antonio, meanwhile, sends people to their neighborhood H-E-B, branch library, school campus or other locale to find a signal. How can we advocate for those in need? How did this happen? What are the consequences of not acting?

In partnership with SA Digital Connects, HCAP will host a Lecture on Digital Divide in San Antonio.

Moderator: Roger Enriquez, Executive Director of Westside Community Partnerships

Panel Members:

  • Marina Alderete Gavito, Executive Director of SA Digital Connects
  • AJ Rodriguez, Executive Vice President, Texas 2036
  • Mary Garr, President & CEO, Family Service Association
