A nonprofit workers cooperative building digital tools for the grassroots

What we do

In an increasingly digital world, thoughtfully designed technology can facilitate everyday autonomy and large-scale collective action. We work in three complementary spheres.

01.

Building digital tools and infrastructure

Co-designing software that lowers barriers to activism and self-organisation.

02.

Growing the technical capacity of the movement

Coordinating fellow technical activists and projects across the ecosystem and encouraging good engineering and design practice.

03.

Encouraging platform organising across the movement

Recognising that infrastructure is a composition of people, tools and structures, we faciliate movement activists and organisations to reflect on their transferable skills and shared challenges, so we can organise at ever-larger scales.

What we're working on

Prototyping a digital platform to help people get involved in grassroots activism when they aren't sure where to start.
