Baltimore Digital Equity Coalition

Support the Baltimore Digital Equity Coalition

The Baltimore Digital Equity Coalition (BDEC) connects committed organizations and individuals to coordinated efforts that seek to advance digital equity and close the digital divide. A cohort of over 50 member organizations, BDEC works to address both the urgent and long-term need for increased digital access throughout the city of Baltimore. Initially formed as a “rapid response” effort in the wake of COVID-19 closures and shutdowns, the Coalition acknowledges the deep-rooted and systemic history of digital inequity, and aims to close the digital divide in Baltimore by providing:


Access to Devices – Ensuring there are affordable, available, and sufficient devices for all historically underrepresented residents, small businesses, and community organizations.

Greater Internet Connectivity – Ensuring there are sufficient options for affordable and available internet connectivity for all.

Digital Skills Training and Technical Support – Creating and delivering educational opportunities for all residents, and ensuring there is technical support available to all who need it.

Advocacy – Engaging elected officials, civic leaders, and citizens most affected by the digital divide to advocate for equal access to computers, internet connectivity, and digital literacy.


This work is accomplished using a collective impact model, with a workgroup dedicated to each of the above goals.
