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.

One of the ongoing services that Palante offers is regular updates of virtual private servers (VPS). VPS run a lot of the critical infrastructure on which our client’s websites and databases depend. Updates to these servers provide critical security patches and are really important to the overall security and uptime of an operation.

In the wake of global pandemic, we at Palante Technology Cooperative have been working hard to determine the best course of action to protect our workers’ health while ensuring our clients receive the best service possible in the face of uncertainty and transition. As a majority remote organization, we expect work to continue uninterrupted for our Web and Civi clients, while switching to expanded remote support to our physical Tech Support clients. To this end, we wanted to share the following updates to our service policies:

In early January all eight Palante workers gathered in our cooperative's original home base of NYC for our winter retreat. We met in the conference room at The Muste Institute, a Palante client and a hub for social justice organizing in NYC that also houses the War Resisters League, another longtime Palante client. We soaked in the revolutionary energy of the space and let it inspire our hard work towards building a stronger, more sustainable and more effective cooperative to better support ourselves and our movements. We were also excited to borrow the balloon arch that we found in their office for our traditional retreat photo!
