What We Do

We are a broad, welcoming coalition with members and participants who care about Digital Equity! Together we share resources, create workshops on best practices, funding and policy that impacts DE and provide networking opportunities to come together to learn and collaborate.


DELN members support DELN’s goals by engaging in our community listserv, participating in general meetings, and signing on as a DELN member to strengthen the coalition’s collaboration and advocacy voice.  For more information, visit our membership page.


This work group is open to all and meets regularly to strategize and support DELN’s advocacy efforts for digital equity. 

WorK Group

An open to all group that meets regularly to plan the DELN bi-monthly general meetings and coordinate communication and membership efforts.  This working group includes members of the steering committee and general DELN members.  


The DELN steering committee meets monthly to set agendas and strategy for the coalition.  We seek diverse participation across agencies, government, and individuals engaged in digital equity work. Members have 1 year renewable terms and are expected to participate in 75% of the steering committee meetings as well as most of the general meetings. Organizations or individuals who otherwise might not be able to participate would be eligible for a stipend to support their participation.
