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.

  • No Money for Massacres In-person Phonebank

    November 30, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Beacon Hill Friends House, 6-8 Chestnut St, Boston MA, 02108

    Boston DSA's Internationalism Working Group will be hosting an in person gathering to join the National DSA Phonebank to call on congressmembers to sign on to a ceasefire in Gaza. Please bring a laptop and charged phone if you can. We will be phonebanking constituents in key congressional districts together while using technology and a zoom presentation from National. You may also register from home and join virtually, but we think phone-banking can be scary and it's much more fun in person. Plus we'll provide snacks!

    Two million lives are on the line. On November 30th, we say: not on our dime!
