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.

    voters, and we'll put the social in socialism by finishing with a social at a Tanjore Bar and Restaurant. Join us for a fun afternoon of organizing and community building!

    canvassed before or it's been a while? No worries! We'll have
    experienced canvassers there to train you and get you feeling
