Ecosocialism Working Group

The Boston DSA Ecosocialism Working Group aims to promote a socialist analysis amongst environmentalists and an ecological analysis among socialists. We do this by organizing winning campaigns that build solidarity among community members and key allies; and recognize and challenge the capitalist origins of our modern environmental crisis.
