The State of California recently released the draft Digital Equity Plan utilizing the input of over 50,000 Californian residents. The plan will position the state to receive an allocation of the Digital Equity Capacity Grant, funded by the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021, that will help close the digital divide for good. 

The Plan will help fund programs that can give everyone access to high-performance broadband, devices, and digital skills training. Additionally, funding could be used for digital literacy programs, community technology initiatives, digital navigator services, affordable device distribution and workforce training our community.

To help our community close the digital divide, we need your feedback! Contribute to this plan by sharing your thoughts on the draft in the form of a public comment.

The San Joaquin Delta College Digital Media Film Festival First Place Winner: Systemic

Duane Sanders is a photographer and videographer with roots deeply embedded in the vibrancy of Northern California. 

Ardon Rick Aragon is a photographer, videographer, and graphic designer currently enrolled at San Joaquin Delta College studying for his Digital Media AA

This documentary on adult education in San Joaquin County was produced and directed by Duane Sanders and Ardon Rick Aragon. It stars local students and features educators and Dr. Heather Maloy on the subject of reentry students in California. This is directly tied to California's 2030 vision for success in reducing equity gaps to help prepare America's future.

In this thought-provoking documentary, we shine a spotlight on the diverse narratives of adult education, featuring raw and authentic voices of individuals who have embraced learning later in life. From overcoming personal challenges to rediscovering a passion for knowledge, these students share their unique journeys and the impact of education on their lives.

 "Systemic" is not just a documentary; it's a celebration of the courage it takes to embrace learning at any stage of life. As we navigate through the ups and downs of adult education, you'll gain a deeper understanding of the importance of providing accessible and inclusive learning opportunities for everyone.
