I’m pleased to announce the publication of the Lewis Latimer Plan for Digital Equity and Inclusion, for which I served as volunteer co-author and editor-in-chief. The Plan, commissioned by the National Urban League, is a comprehensive agenda for closing what remains of the U.S. digital divide.
The plan, including a detailed executive summary, can be found here: https://nul.org/program/lewis-latimer-plan
The Latimer Plan occupied much of my time last year, and I’m excited to see it finally in print, just as Washington is beginning to debate infrastructure, a key (though not the sole) component of our plan. Though the Biden approach to network availability differs significantly from the Latimer plan, the goals of the two plans are the same, and it may be turn out that the Latimer approach wins out as the more cost-effective, timely, pragmatic, and bi-partisan. We’ll see!
