Palante stands in solidarity with non-profit employees unionizing across the country who are exercising their rights to collectively bargain for better wages, benefits, and working conditions. As a democratic, worker-owned cooperative that serves non-profit and community organizations advancing social justice, we believe that the internal structures of our movements and organizations should model the liberated world we are trying to build.

This past June, the Palante Technology workers met up in upstate New York for our summer retreat. Nina joined us remotely from Michigan. Many snacks were eaten, many important conversations were had!

Palante is pleased to announce that Janine has accepted an invitation to become our latest worker-owner. Janine joined us last fall and hit the ground running, getting deeply immersed in dealing with Palante's diverse field of IT clients. They are now a vital part of our technical support wing and we are excited to continue to grow with them as an owner. Let us all congratulate Janine on becoming a full worker-owner in our cooperative.
Back in early February, Palante headed to our newest outpost in Long Beach, California for our winter retreat. Retreats are a big change of pace: our team is distributed across both coasts and in between, and we're typically quite occupied with day-to-day work. Twice a year, we dedicate a full weekend to the retreat and put together an agenda of longer conversations we think will benefit from being in the same room (with the occasional marathon video conference participant).
