Palante recently launched a new Drupal website for FIERCE, a grassroots organization that builds the leadership and power of LGBTQ youth of color in New York City. We helped FIERCE shape a website plan based on their goals and audiences, migrated content from their old, proprietary content management system into Drupal, created a new mobile-friendly site design based on their existing organizational branding, and integrated Drupal Commerce store and CiviCRM mailing list functionality into the new site. Palante is proud to work with FIERCE as they continue their brilliant and vitally important work in NYC and nationally. The rebellion is not over!

On April 8th, 2014, Microsoft will end support for their Windows XP and Office 2003 products. After this date, Microsoft will no longer provide patches for any security vulnerabilities found. It's safe to assume that many hackers will hold off on using the exploits they've found until after that date, rendering Windows XP unusable almost immediately. For this reason, Palante Tech will no longer be able to support computers running Windows XP or Office 2003 after April 8th, 2014. We ask that our clients plan to replace, upgrade, or retire the computers you still have running Windows XP and/or Office 2003.
New sites launched for the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives and the Democracy at Work Initiative

Both sites are tightly integrated with the CiviCRM implentation that Palante also developed for the USFWC, allowing USFWC members to access member benefits and materials online, view member-only resources in the DAWI Resource Library, and be featured along with service providers in USFWC's online directories.
