One Web Day is a global event, like an Earth Day for the Internet. It is a platform people can use to educate and mobilize others about issues that are important for the Internet's future. In order to raise awareness about the need for reliable and affordable Internet access in Philadelphia, we are organizing a citywide event for One Web Day on September 22, as well as a "week of service" leading up to the celebration. During the week of service, we will host computer trainings for residents living in Philadelphia Housing Authority developments.
And we need you! We're looking for volunteers to help with the planning and other logistics. We are also looking for organizations to co-sponsor One Web Day--this could entail helping promote it, helping recruit volunteers or kicking in money or computers for donation.
