Who We Are

Boston DSA is the Eastern MA chapter of Democratic Socialists of America.


We are working against the oppressive capitalist system in its many forms. We see these oppressions — economic inequality, patriarchy, white supremacy, to name a few — as interlinked, intersecting, and inseparable.


Join us in building mass movements for the world we deserve and growing an openly socialist presence in communities and politics in the Greater Boston Area.

Join a Boston DSA Working Group

Boston DSA’s working groups carry out the external political work of the chapter. Working groups are centered strategies such as labor organizing (supporting striking workers and educators) or socialist electoral politics (challenging the legislative system). Learn about the working groups and find your organizing home within the chapter.

Protesters march through the streets of Boston holding signs that say "A Better World if Possible Democratic Socialists of America" and "Boston DSA Supports a Free Palestine"

Working Group Spotlight: Palestine

Join the Palestine Working Group! We’re fighting Warren and Markey by building a mass base around three critical issues – a permanent ceasefire, ending weapons shipments to Israel, and delivering immediate relief for Gaza. For the first time in history, the American people are on the side of Palestine – help us organize them!
