Description

May First/People Link
May First/People Link is a politically progressive member-run and controlled organization that redefines the concept of "Internet Service Provider" in a collective and collaborative way. May First/People Link's members are organizers and activists. Like any democratic membership organization, we gather together each year to evaluate the past year's experiences, plan the coming year's work and elect a Leadership Committee to apply what we've decided. Like a coop, we pay dues, buy equipment and then we all use that equipment as we need to for websites, email, email lists, and just about everything else we do on the Internet.

At MF/PL members are encourage to use all the resources necessary to be successful - whether that's additional email addresses, web sites or other services: there are no pre-defined limits to what you can use. All you do is pay your dues. Dues are on a sliding scale, starting with $200 for an organization and $100 for an individual (90% of our members pay this level of dues). A small number of organizations pay more based on the cost of their additional resource usage.

MF/PL is comprised of both individuals and organizations and is directed by a Leadership Committee comprised of 12 MF/PL members who named two Co-Directors to oversee operations day to day. The MF/PL staff is a group of members, both paid and volunteer, who meet weekly and provide their labor to run the organization.

At this point, MF/PL is one of the few organizations of its type in the world and one of the world's oldest and largest politically progressive Internet providers.
