Last Saturday, we hosted an event celebrating two years of building a digital justice movement in Detroit through our two-year federal Broadband Technology Opportunities Fund grant. The Detroit Future Celebration was attended by more than 150 and featured a community report-back back followed by a DiscoTech (Discovering Technology) fair.
