The bridge to opportunity is digital
Of any major city in the U.S., Cleveland has the highest percentage of households without broadband internet accounts. Almost 53,000 Cleveland households—31% of the city’s total—lack broadband subscriptions of any kind at any speed, including mobile data plans (2019 U.S. Census American Community Survey (ACS)).
At Brokaw, helping our community grow and prosper is part of our DNA. With our history of collaborating with local institutions and an appreciation for all things digital, we decided minimizing the digital equity gap was an immediate and worthy cause.
The Greater Cleveland Digital Equity coalition, made up of more than 70 local organizations, amassed resources and financial support to improve digital connection in Cleveland—an effort we offered to amplify through an awareness campaign.
