Welcome to the The Peers Community, a highly motivated community of people with a strong interest in free software and free culture.
We all help each other toward the common goal of supporting and growing free projects. The Peers Community provides a list of independent projects that all strive for free (as in freedom!) software and culture. If you would like to learn more about a particular project, feel free to reach out to them directly.
The following is a list of projects by people participating in our community.
If you would like to join us and add your project, feel free to contact us.

Would you like to help too? Feel free to join us! It's a good opportunity to help a free project, and also to get to know us! You can also read about past Jams in the blog section.
