The Latin American Association (LAA), the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and Cox Enterprises partnered to bridge the digital divide in the Hispanic community by opening a new Technology Center in Atlanta. It is part of LULAC's Empower Hispanic America with Technology (EHAT) initiative which ensures Hispanic communities have access to dependable technology and useful resources that will empower them to succeed.

"Innovation and inclusion are both essential for our state to thrive, which is why Cox jumped at the chance to partner with LULAC and the Latin American Association to open this tech center. We are proud to help bridge the digital divide for Georgia's Hispanic community" expressed Gaston Vaneri, VP of Brand Strategy at Cox Communications, a division of Cox Enterprises.

As the only location in Georgia and one of 67 facilities throughout the U.S., the technology center will provide students, parents and low income Latino individuals access to free high-speed internet, state-of-the art computer equipment and a technology curriculum. The center will also offer office applications and computer training courses.

As part of the grand opening, LAA's Executive Director Aníbal Torres, said: "We are here to celebrate another exciting chapter for the Latin American Association, one that will continue to enhance our mission to empower Latinos to adapt, integrate and thrive.”
