THE MICHIGAN

MOONSHOT
INTERESTED CITIZEN

Access to, and use of, the internet has become an integral component of everyday life in the 21st century. Digital information has reshaped how individuals participate in nearly every dimension of society. It is imperative for communities to leverage broadband network access to eliminate the homework gap and for the benefit of education, telemedicine, public safety, workforce development, and to maintain general quality of life.

Private citizens like you are the backbone of the grassroots efforts needed to further broadband expansion throughout Michigan. Whether advocating with local policymakers, connecting with like-minded citizens or participating in regional broadband task forces, individual contributors are critical to furthering access for all.
