Philadelphia is the poorest big city in the United States. Like many cities with a high concentration of poverty, Philadelphia struggles with broadband access, which prevents thousands of Philadelphians from connecting to the jobs, education and healthcare that everyone deserves.

Join Federal Communications Commissioner Mignon Clyburn in a panel conversation with government and civic leaders working to ensure every person can access the internet. At this vital time in our nation, expect a wide-ranging conversation that covers local and national policy solutions, on-the-ground stories of breaking the digital divide, and a look at what's next in the fight to get everyone online.

This panel will be hosted and moderated by Technically Philly's Juliana Reyes. Spaces are limited, so RSVP early. Light refreshments will be provided.

Other panelists include:

  • Philadelphia City Council Majority Leader Bobby Henon

  • Philadelphia City Council Member Helen Gym

  • Chief Administrative Officer Rebecca Rhynhart, City of Philadelphia

  • Director of Membership and Outreach, Antoine Haywood, PhillyCAM

  • President and Director, Free Library of Philadelphia, Siobhan Reardon

  • Senior Advisor for Broadband, City of New York, Joshua Breitbart

More panelists may be added as the event approaches.
