      About the Event:
      As a 2-hour luncheon, there will be two activities. First, there will be a
      screening of highlights from the upcoming PBS documentary, "DIGITAL DIVIDE,"
      with comments from the executive producer, David Bolt of Studio Miramar.
      Second, we will have a panel presenation about challenges and solutions from
      experts and activists including California State Superintendent for Public
      Instruction Delaine Eastin, Dr. Milton Chen of the George Lucas Educational
      Foundation, Graciela Martinez of the American Friends Service
      Committee-Proyecto Campesino in Goshen, and another community organization
      representative. Most of the panel time will be used for Q&A with the
      audience. The event will be held in the Community Room at KVIE Channel 6
      (PBS affiliate) in Sacramento.

      About the Digital Divide Education Project:
      "Addressing the Digital Divide in the Central Valley and Beyond" is part of
      the Digital Divide Education Project of the New Valley Connexions Program.
      Coordinated by the USDA National Center for Excellence at California State
      University, Fresno, the Digital Divide Education Project is an effort to
      increase awareness among rural and Hispanic communities about how technology
      is changing the way of work, education and living in the Information Age.
      With the support of Univision KFTV Channel 21 in Fresno, the Project has
      created an educational video in both Spanish and English. In addition, the
      Project is working with local government and civic organizations to
      coordinate a series of community outreach sessions about the topic.
      Information about obtaining copies of the videos as well as a schedule of the
      community events is available at:
      http://www.greatvalley.org/nvc/digital_divide.

      New Valley Connexions is a partnership program with the Great Valley Center
      and the California Trade and Commerce Agency, Office of Strategic Technology.


      Hope some of you can join us,
