Contribute to gNewSense!

Volunteers are key to the success of gNewSense. This is a community effort -- we do not have the support of corporations behind us like many other distributions do, and so it depends on YOU to make things happen. :)

Read below to learn more about how you can help. Once you find something that interests you, contact our Volunteer Coordinator Graziano Sorbaioli to get started: volunteer AT gnewsense.org
