Students all know the pains – dropped Zoom calls, spotty reception and failed downloads. COVID-19 has changed college campuses forever, expanding the classroom to wherever we can connect to the internet.
While the transition has opened more access for students, it also leaves behind many, including the 3.5 million Californians who do not have internet access at home. As students, we deserve a voice in the fight to close the digital divide. I was proud to support AB 2753 and participate as a witness in a legislative committee hearing for the first time.
