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 2023 Chapter Priority Campaign

Boston DSA members vote on organizing campaigns to prioritize and focus on every year. Our 2023 campaigns are “We Keep Us Safe: Growing Direct Action, Safety & Security in Our Community” and “Expanding Socialists in Office Committees.” Learn more about our priorities and get involved today.

Join a BDSA 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.
