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.

SoliComm Phone Banking - DSA Union Members
February 28, 2024 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Democracy Center, 45 Mt Auburn St, Cambridge MA, 02138
Join BDSA Labor Working Group's Solidarity Committee this Wednesday, 7:30PM at the Democracy Center for a phone bank of union members in DSA.
As BDSA's Strike Ready Team, we mobilized DSA members for national strike waves (UPS Teamsters, UAW Big 3 Strike). Now, we've shifted towards deepening our understanding of Boston's labor scene, and creating a network of DSA union members who are committed to building militancy in their locals. We hope that our conversations with rank-and-file union members will not
only give us a sense of how active and militant our local unions are,
but also help us build connections and share knowledge with fellow socialist union organizers.
During our phone bank, we'll be asking our union DSA members to fill out this survey: link . Please join us if you can! Get in touch by emailing the Labor Working Group at email@example.com.
