#50KTouches – Access from AT&T

The NETwork goal is to engage our membership at the national and local levels in support of the Access from AT&T program expansion. As part of the AT&T/DTV Merger agreements, the FCC mandated the offering of Low Cost Broadband Services to access the Internet to qualified low income households in AT&T’s 21-State footprint.

This Agreement provides an opportunity for The NETwork and its local chapters to expand its presence within the communities we serve, build new relationships, and focus a positive light on AT&T in our communities.

The NETwork will reach 50,000 touches by the end of 2019. For more information or to get engaged, please contact your chapter president or Chief Program Officer DeWanda Ricks.

 

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Event

Mark Your Calendar!

This year, our Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day event titled, “Change Forward”, challenged us to look at our past, our present and our future to make changes in our communities.

In 2018, we will examine Dr. King’s speech titled, “Where Do We Go From Here?” 
In 1967, Dr. King isolated himself from the demands of the Civil Rights Movement, rented a house in Jamaica without a telephone, and labored over what was to be his final manuscript.

In his most prophetic work, which has been unavailable for more than ten years, he laid out his thoughts, plans, and dreams for America’s future. Dr. King addressed the need for better jobs, higher wages, decent housing, and quality education. With a universal message of hope that continues to resonate, Dr. King demanded an end to global suffering, asserting that humankind, for the first time, had the resources and technology to eradicate poverty.

Today, we ask the same question posed by Dr. King in his speech, “Where Do We Go From Here?”. We will continue to address our Chairman’s challenge and take a deeper dive into what happens next to execute on solutions; driving us closer to understanding.

Your local chapter will be hosting a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. themed C.A.F.E. conversation during the week of January 9, 2018.  Stay tuned for more information.
