Our Services

We provide technology consulting services to nonprofit progressive, social justice, & community organizations. Our tight focus allows us to specialize in tools specific to the needs of the movements we serve.

Website Design & Development

Palante specializes in creating dynamic and affordable websites for a wide variety of organizations and purposes. We pay careful attention to accessibility, usability, and information architecture to create sites that are highly effective tools for communication, advocacy and engagement. More...

CRM Database Strategy & Deployment

We specialize in planning, developing and implementing databases using CiviCRM, a web-based open source constituent relationship manager designed specifically for nonprofit organizations. More...

Organizational Digital Security

We guide groups through comprehensive organizational digital security processes, from assessment to analysis to implementation and beyond. We use a holistic understanding of security and a harm reduction framework that centers the politics and priorities of the organizations and the communities they serve. More...

Tech Infrastructure & Networking

Wireless networks, file servers, networked printers, data backups and more. For smaller organizations that don't have the resources to hire someone to maintain their technology infrastructure, we design and implement systems that provide the crucial technology backbone organizations need without the need for in-house expertise. More...

Web and CiviCRM Maintenance & Support

Our monthly maintenance and support plans for Backdrop, Drupal, WordPress and CiviCRM are designed to keep your critical platforms running smoothly, securely and without interruptions. More...

Managed IT Plans

If you only call for IT support when your technology is broken, you may find yourself without someone to handle preventative care, or to provide big-picture guidance.  We offer comprehensive IT support plans for a fixed monthly cost, covering the IT functions normally provided by in-house staff. More...

We come to this work with technical expertise, a deep understanding of the needs of community organizations, & a long-standing commitment to working for social justice.

Update on January 4, 2022: Due to the overwhelming surge of Covid-19 cases in NYC as a result of the Omicron variant, our tech support team will not be scheduling site visits before January 25, 2022. Should conditions be safe enough when we re-asses on January 25, we will resume scheduling with clients that need on-site work as long as they can meet our Covid-19 guidelines for worker safety. Until then, we will continue to provide remote support for all of our tech support clients.

Palante is excited to give a belated blog welcome to Angel, our newest worker! Angel joined our tech support team back in July and dove right into their new role with enthusiasm, quickly demonstrating their hard-won help desk skills in supporting our tech support clients in NYC and beyond. They have also quickly begun contributing to our internal organizational work to make Palante a better workplace for our workers and better service provider for our clients. We're thrilled to have Angel on board as we continue to grow, evolve, and provide vital technology services to our movements.

The workers of Palante Tech are grieving the unexpected passing of Linda Thurston, Operations Coordinator at the War Resisters League. We have worked with Lin and WRL since our very first year in existence, before we even incorporated as a business. Lin was an amazing client and a beautiful soul.
