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.

This summer Palante wished very fond adieus to two longtime worker-owners, Jessie Lee and Nina Reyes, who were part of our cooperative for eight and nine years respectively -- big chunks of the existence of our twelve-year-old business!

Palante is very excited to welcome Alisia Rueda to our team as our first dedicated Operations Manager ever! Janine did the awesome work of proposing and beginning this position, and we knew we wanted to formalize and continue the role after they left earlier this year. After a long search during which we considered many excellent candidates, we were super happy to bring Alisia onto the team! Since day one she has demonstrated extraordinary dedication, organization and skill in wrangling the many facets of Palante's operations.

In 2020 Jack Aponte took Palante Technology Cooperative's first sabbatical. As they described in their blog post announcing their sabbatical, we designed our policy with the plan that it would be repeatable, so that each member of Palante can enjoy this benefit during their tenure at the cooperative. And so the time comes again when a member of our cooperative lifts their head up from their screen, and adventures out into the world.
