About Us

We are the community dedicated to advancing digital inclusion in San Antonio.

Our Vision & Mission

The Digital Inclusion Alliance of San Antonio (DIASA) fosters San Antonio’s digital ecosystem by facilitating the collaboration of organizations providing digital inclusion services and promoting the democratization of digital inclusion initiatives within our community.

The digital divide is an economic and social inequity that creates a gap between people who have the skills and access to fully embrace broadband, communications technology and services, and those who do not. The digital divide in San Antonio disproportionately impacts low-income households and residents with lower levels of educational attainment.

DIASA aims to ensure inclusion by cultivating and promoting public policies and initiatives that prioritize digital equity, so that all residents can fully participate in the digital economy. We envision a community-driven digital inclusion ecosystem promoting the democratization of digital inclusion initiatives through grassroots power-building and community activation.
