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.

Due to old tax software that assumed every cooperative was a farm, there has been a running joke at our coop that Palante would one day get into farming. We still haven’t, but Janine has!
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.
This position has been filled! Palante Technology Cooperative is seeking a new technical support person to join us in our work with incredible nonprofit and community organizations. The new worker will join our tech support team, providing remote and on-site assistance to our clients in New York City.
