The Pew Charitable Trust was created in 1948 as a non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO). Its declared aim is to serve the public good by “enhancing public policy, educating the public, and stimulating civic life” with nearly $6 billion in assets.
A variety of public policy projects are part of Pew’s goal. These projects are focused on specific public policy issues such as civil legal reform, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, local public policies, justice, and public safety, student loans, ocean and fisheries protection, conservation of public lands and rivers, consumer finance and the larger economy, government reform, and public health issues.
The Broadband Access Summit: Making the most of our nation’s investment in digital equity
Affordable, dependable internet for all has never been closer to becoming a reality, but it will need a countrywide commitment and collaboration from federal, state, local, and tribal governments, industry organizations, non-profits, and academic institutions to make it a reality.
On June 21-22 in Cleveland, Ohio, The Pew Charitable Trusts invites you to begin that effort at The Broadband Access Summit. Join us and partners from throughout the country for two days of seminars and conversations aimed at providing you with the information, skills, and relationships you’ll need to get started on the road to universal internet access.
Attendees will leave with a greater awareness of the financing options available and the role they can play in leveraging this investment in digital equity to enhance health care, education, economic mobility, and other areas.
