Hola and Hello,
This summer, AUTMHQ volunteers have been leading different sessions during the African American Youth Harvest Foundation's Summer Program. From leadership in tech and insights into tech start ups, to social media and digital literacy, AUTMHQ has been instrumental in helping to groom the next generation of technology leaders. Special thanks to all of our AUTMHQ volunteers and to the African American Youth Harvest Foundation for the opportunity to speak to its students 🙌 Sincerely,
The AUTMHQ Team
Texas Broadband Development Office (TX BDO)
Without your input, Texas will not be properly funded to provide the digital resources its citizens need. Help TX BDO decide the digital resources that are needed in Texas by providing your feedback.
City of Austin takes a step backwards
Earlier this year, AUTMHQ shared our expertise on digital equity and technology to help inform Equity Action's Community Investment Budget (CIB). Unfortunately, none of those budget recommendation were accepted. Additionally, the City of Austin seems to be taking a step backwards as it pertains to equity, and we need you to take action! Here are a few things you can do to let your voice be heard as City leadership continues to ignore the community's call for programs and resources we need.
