This is a living documents that may evolve over time.Throneless Tech is a queer, values-driven worker cooperative. We are humans first, worker-owners second. We strive to build technology with, not just for, our communities. We are here for abolition and liberation, and struggle against racist colonial, imperial, and capitalist systems in our work. We are accountable to each other; we are not cops to each other. We are laboring for a future where that’s true for all, so we work on projects designed with this mission in mind.
