RECORDED JANUARY 14, 2021

In March of 2020, many of us migrated into our homes, turned on our laptop and began working remotely. Schooling migrated online, business meetings online, our social lives online. What about people who don’t have access to internet, specifically broadband access? How has the pandemic effected their ability to work and connect?  What can our communities and agencies do to include our distant neighbors into the social circles of an online community?
