Film featuring Cleveland digital redlining now on line

“Dividing Lines”, the short film featuring AT&T’s digital redlining of Cleveland that premiered last April at Net Inclusion, is now available to view on line.

Produced by Maria Smith of Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society and Karen Heredia from the New Media Advocacy Project, “Dividing Lines” focuses on Internet access obstacles faced by low income families and neighborhoods in San Francisco and Cleveland. The Cleveland portion of the film relies heavily on the digital redlining study published in 2017 by Connect Your Community and the National Digital Inclusion Alliance, and includes interviews with CYC Director Bill Callahan and NDIA Executive Director Angela Siefer.
