I just saw this on the Tech-Coop listserv and thought it would be
relevant here: https://savedotorg.org/

Hi coop folks, I wanted to invite y'all to sign on to the Save .ORG
As you may have heard, the Public Interest Registry (PIR) has removed
price caps for renewing .ORG domain names, and now the entire .ORG
registry may be sold off to a private equity firm, which would operate
it for profit and with even less oversight from the community.
We're asking the Internet Society and ICANN to reconsider this plan.
