Help us break down the digital divide and empower women throughout the Kensington community in Philadelphia
The digital divide is arguably the single greatest indicator of the distribution of power. In Philadelphia 49% are not online or computer literate, the majority of these are women. This leaves many poor, single mothers and other women and low-income men disconnected from opportunities that would allow them to help shape what is happening in their lives and their communities. In response, PPEHRC has created a project called "Technology for Social Change & Leadership Training" that aims to train 20 women in the community of Kensington with basic computer skills and skills to become active leaders within their communities.
In order for our project to be a success, we need to raise $7,500.
If 1,000 people donate $8 TODAY we will exceed our goal by $500!
Editor's Note: This program is sponsored by the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Forum, which is committed to uniting the poor across color lines as the leadership base for a broad movement to abolish poverty. We work to accomplish this through advancing economic human rights as named in the universal declaration of human rights - such as the rights to food, housing, health, education, communication and a living wage job. A number of Green Party activists are involved with PPEHRC including Cheri Honkala.
