Google along with Values Partnerships are working to find solutions that will help close the digital divide among African Americans and bring greater education, information and empowerment to your church and community.


Joshua Dubois, who ran the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships during President Barack Obama’s first term as president. He was also a Founding Partner of Values Partnerships and collaborated with Reverend Robin Joseph who works for Google in Georgia to present several sessions at the General Conference to educate the community and gather information in partnership with the AME Zion Church.


Together they developed an informational survey card that was distributed at the General Conference seeking information about the state of digital access among African Americans. Their goal is to survey as many members of the AME Zion church as possible, as well as the African American community at large. Therefore this process is not solely directed at the AME Zion Church but will be applied to other African American churches and faith-based organizations.


The ultimate goal of this endeavor is to find solutions that will overcome barriers, some of which are security and privacy issues, insufficient skill sets and access to equipment and training, perceived or real, to the African American community using technology.
