MF/PL Member Survey

  1. May First/People Link as a membership organization. We are united behind a commitment to protecting and expanding the Internet as a powerful resource and movement for social and political change. Our diverse array of member organizations and individual allies believe that technology plays a critical role in movements for social change and that there is a need for collective action to harness our organizing power in a separate space from commercial interests.

How strongly has membership in this network factored into your decision to join and continue with May First/People Link?

  • Very Important
  • Somewhat Important
  • Not very important
  • I am only interested in web hosting services
  1. May First/People Link prioritizes the use of free and open source software (FOSS) as essential to the struggle for social justice. We feel that proprietary software fueled by commercial interests with commercial imperatives can only hold back the potential of our movements.

  • FOSS is important but continue to rely on proprietary software
