    5 May First/People Link's mission is to defend and expand the Internet as a movement for free and open communication in order to strengthen the global movement for justice. We envision a world in which technology is freely shared, accessible to everyone, and used for everyone's benefit. We see a critically important role for progressive and social justice activists to play in uniting this vision of the Internet with the broader left's vision of a more just world.

    6666 * Democracy. We are organized as a membership organization as a means of changing the perception we have of technology and our role in technology. We will never succeed in defending and expanding the free and open nature of the Internet until we understand our role in directing the development of this technology. By organizing ourselves as a democratic membership organization, and inviting our members to participate in the direction of our organization, we seek to transform the way our members view their role in technology.
    6767 * Education. Many of our members, including our most politically committed, regularly use corporate and proprietary services. Educating our members about the dangers of being reliant on these technologies is a critical strategy of the organization. Similarly, developing a dialogue between the activists and organizers dependent on the Internet for their organizing and develpoers creating free and open software is equally important in order to ensure the direction of our development work stays inline with the needs of the movement.
    68   * Movement Building. We actively participate in movement building, ranging from massive organizing efforts like the social forum, to small panels and presentations. We participate both as technologists to help strenthen our movement's use of technology, and also as activists and organizers in our own right.
