In last week’s inaugural episode, Kennan spoke from the heart and from his experience about taking on the torch from Dirk to light that last mile for digital equity. Not to be confused with Dennis Eckersley, Rickey Henderson, and Reggie Jackson, Kennan also shared the Three A’s framework of Digital Opportunity to help guide the discourse about where Oakland is in terms of #internetforall, but for the deeper questions that we may never have considered about internet access: Availability; Affordability; and Accessibility.

Join us again as we start our regularly scheduled live broadcast THIS Friday, May 20th as Kennan invites David Silver and Patrick Messac of the Mayor’s Office and #OaklandUndivided as they unpack new developments in providing access to even more Oakland residents. #OaklandUndivided, a citywide effort to ensure every Oakland public school student has the tools necessary to support digital access in their home has delivered 29,000 computers and 10,000 hotspots, increasing home tech connectivity for students from low-income backgrounds from 12% to 98% pre-pandemic to now.
