The Progressive Technology Project (PTP) Our mission is to help community organizations achieve their goals more effectively and efficiently. Our programs help community organizers build their skills and understanding to integrate technology into the work of the organizations.
PTP was founded by grassroots organizers to support social change community-led organizing in low-income communities and communities of color in 1998. PTP strengthens grassroots social change community organizing in poor communities and communities of color by
- delivering specialized training for community organizers in communications and database technology
- creating and supporting an online database (PowerBase) for organizing
- providing a framework for technical assistance
PTP has worked with hundreds of organizations over the years.
