20 residents attended in-person and an additional 38 tuned in online and from our satellite location in Lenox.
Residents from across the Berkshires region came to our statewide listening series event in Pittsfield on Wednesday, Sept. 13th. The presentation and discussions touched on various aspects of digital equity, including language barriers, affordability, and access to devices. We heard directly from residents about critical issues related to affordability and accessibility and learned a lot about the community.
Thank you to our partners, Wylie Goodman from the Berkshires Regional Planning Commission, Michael Obasohan,Chief Diversity Officer and Kevin Zawistowski CIO of the City of Pittsfield, and Pastor Joel Bergeland at The Common Room at Zion Lutheran Church for hosting us! We would also like to thank the North Adams and Lenox Libraries for preparing and hosting the satellite sessions. We are grateful for all of those that assisted in our outreach efforts as well.
