AT&T recently partnered with Oregon Community Foundation’s Black Student Success Network and the Portland Timbers/Thorns to provide 200 free laptops and other technology resources for students to learn and work. The event, held at Providence Park, brought out community organizations from across the state to promote digital equity among Oregon youth and their families. It is also part of AT&T's nationwide Connected Learning initiative to bridge the digital divide.
Amir Johnson, Director of External and Legislative Affairs, Oregon, LaNae Johnson, Senior Program Officer, Black Student Success, Dr. Robin Beavers, VP of Community and Social Impact, Portland Timbers and Thorns FC and State Senator Aaron Woods spoke about the importance of digital literacy, education and AT&T’s commitment to Connected Learning.
