We are a worker-owned cooperative in Atlanta, GA providing hosting and internet services for social justice-oriented organizations.
Bramble was founded in 2017 in Atlanta. In an era of rising surveillance, targeting, and harassment of social movements, we saw the need for IT services which keep data safe from hackers, trolls, and abuse of power by authorities. Our experience as activists inspired us to “be the change we want to see in the world”, by organizing as IT professionals. We aim to ensure that the Internet can be used to advance important causes and support vulnerable communities while minimizing risk.

We are a co-operative because we believe businesses should put the well-being of their workers first. All of our members are co-owners, and have an equal voice in ensuring fair pay, decent working conditions, and responsible business practices. We are also dedicated to spreading skills and experience by training new members, especially those from backgrounds which are marginalized in the tech world.
