Invest in people-powered tech by becoming a LittleSustainer!

This has been an inspired year of buildout and blossoming for the LittleSis Tech program – the oldest and most far-reaching part of our work that helps us all keep our eyes on the ties. Collectively we’ve added thousands of new entities, donations, relationships, and important datasets that shine light on the powers that be!

Our 2022 and all-time usage stats!

For the last 13 years has been a place where community researchers and organizers have come to learn, share, and grow our collective knowledge and analysis of the role of corporate power in our everyday lives. This collaborative research has helped support so many inspiring campaigns not only here in the US but around the world. We’re excited to see how our small but mighty people-powered tech has reached people in so many corners of the world to support fights for economic, climate, and gender justice (just to name a few!).

Today we’re asking you to support LittleSis Tech by becoming a sustaining donor and helping us keep these critical movement resources free and accessible for users around the world.

This year we completed a project to translate our editing tools into Spanish. We’re hoping that in the coming years we can translate the database into more languages to continue to grow access and ease for users beyond the English-speaking world. You can show your support for language justice projects like this by becoming a LittleSustainer today!

If you haven’t already, sign up for our new LittleSis Tech Newsletter where you can be the first to hear about updates to our tech and upcoming trainings and research toolkits and resources. We’re excited to continue to build the people-powered technology that our movements need and deserve and we’d love your support in doing it!
