On July 18, National Action Network (NAN), in partnership with Spectrum, will host a conversation about technology for economic mobility and social change.
NAN and Spectrum have partnered on NAN’s Harlem Learning Lab, a free community source for students and seniors with courses in web design, graphic design, digital literacy and networking, among other digitally-focused programs.
Technology has become a leading focus of NAN’s national platform, and the civil rights organization believes that ending the digital divide in technology is a crucial part of the modern civil rights platform.
The conference, which is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m., will be held at NAN's House of Justice at 106 West 145 Street at Lennox Avenue.
Attendees will include: New York State Senator Brian Benjamin, Majora Carter, CEO of StartUp Box, Camille Joseph, Charter Communications, Inc., Andrew Rasiej, Founder of Civic Hall and Elizabeth John, Executive Director of PowerMyLearning.
