    Community member Nicole Hooper was quoted in a recent article about the computer and digital classes at Literacy Action in Atlanta. She did a great job explaining some of the skills learned in these classes.

    There is a recent news article about bridging the digital divide in Cleveland at Groups providing high-speed internet, low-cost computers to bridge Cleveland's 'Digital Divide'

    This is about an initiative that The Cleveland Foundation just announced to encourage digital inclusion. Community member Leon Wilson works at this organization and he was quoted & pictured in this article.

    His quote "That saying, leave no child behind? Well, we want to leave no resident behind in this new digital economy" is great.
