Hello friend,

It is that time of year where us nonprofit types email our lists and ask for your support.

If you are receiving this message, we are already deeply grateful for your support. Many of you contribute knowledge and facilitative leadership to make our events valuable experiences for so many people. Many of you collaborate with us on projects that build technology capacity and emergent leadership for social change. Many of you serve as allies and ambassadors for our work, introducing us to new friends and spreading the word about what we do. Still more of you read our updates, donate and work with us in a range of ways to enable us pay the bills.

This year, we're doing things a little differently, and inviting you to consider supporting one or more of these five organizations and causes that inspire us as they work in compelling and diverse ways to build strength in movements:

The Movement for Black Lives: Guided by love, The Movement for Black Lives continue to stand together for justice, human dignity and the shared goal of ending all forms of state violence against Black people. They inspire us with their strength and leadership, and their work matters more than ever in 2017 and beyond. Donate to The Movement for Black Lives.

EFF: The Electronic Frontier Foundation defends civil liberties in the digital world, championing user privacy, free expression, and innovation. They work to ensure that rights and freedoms are enhanced and protected as our use of technology grows. At Aspiration, we believe that the ultimate success of all social movements depends on EFF's success. Donate to EFF.

Riseup.net: Riseup provides online communication tools for people and groups working on liberatory social change. Their goal is to create democratic alternatives and practice self-determination by controlling our own secure means of communications. They do so much with very limited resources, and we are proud to call them allies. Donate to Riseup.

Tor Project: Tor is free software and an open network that helps defend against network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy and movement security. They provide an essential layer of anonymity in the internet ecosystem that supports a range of critical activism. Donate to Tor.

Digital NEST: Digital NEST (Nurturing Entrepreneurial Skills with Technology) is a non-profit, high-tech training and collaboration space for young people. Rooted in the socio-economic struggle of a small California coastal town surrounded by a large agricultural region, they are committed to bringing tech to underserved student populations, breaking down the barriers keeping local students from the technology they need and deserve, while fulfilling the unmet needs of Watsonville’s small businesses and entrepreneurs looking for a capable local workforce. We are grateful to have worked with them in 2016. Donate to Digital NEST.

Around the globe, much is in flux in the year ahead. It is clear that we need increased resiliency, capacity and leadership as we mobilize for positive change. We stand in solidarity with you all as we build strength for the work of 2017.

Donations to our network help to enable this work. We invite your support on this shared journey towards justice and equity for all.

peace,
Gunner
