Digital Equity - Closing Opportunity Gaps

Digital Equity - Closing the Opportunity Gaps in Iu Mien Community

We live in a digitally connected world, our families need to be connected to stay informed of what is going on in the world and have access to digital resources. The pandemic has changed the way we live, learn, work, and socialize. Online access has become a vital part of everyday living. In an effort to ensure every Iu Mien family has access to digital resources, Mien International Enrichment Network partnering with United Communities of Laos in collaboration with Equity Education Coalition in Washington to secure resources to help identify families in the underserved Iu Mien communities that have access to digital resources such as computer and/or internet access. This collaborative effort is to help close the opportunity gaps in Iu Mien communities in Washington state. We will be conducting a survey to determine which families have a need for laptops, Wi-Fi access, and headphones. The families demonstrated needs will be connected with the school districts that will be providing Chromebook, Wi-Fi access (one-year subscription paid), and headphones to help students access resources to stay current on their education. Any family that would like to receive a computer, wifi, and/or headphone, please complete this survey. If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Thungc at 206-459-4840 or jthungc@outlook.com
