Beginning in 1987, the Institute for Global Communications (IGC) played a formative role in bringing advanced communications technologies to grassroots organisations worldwide working for peace, human rights, environmental sustainability, women’s rights, conflict resolution and worker rights. Its flagship global computer networks — PeaceNet, EcoNet, WomensNet, ConflictNet, LaborNet and AntiRacismNet — became trademark names in the struggle for democratic use of the media and the world’s communications infrastructure.

IGC believes the progressive community has both the need and the desire for reliable, private, and low cost services provided by a non-profit. There are thousands of progressive people who continue to use the domain name with pride. Over 250 nonprofit organisations host their websites with IGC.
