Who We Are

Boston DSA is a local chapter of Democratic Socialists of America. We are an activist organization — not a political party — that works against oppression in its many forms. We see these multiple oppressions — economic inequality, patriarchy, white supremacy, and others — as interlinked, intersecting and inseparable. DSA’s members are building mass movements for social change while establishing an openly socialist presence in communities and politics in the Greater Boston Area.

    Join railroad workers, DSA, union members, and other supporters at 11:30am on Friday, December 2nd, at the JFK Library to support railroad workers' right to strike!

    For years, railroad companies have cut costs to drive up profits for shareholders, leaving workers to bear the consequences. Rail workers' pay has stagnated despite increasing workloads, long hours, and a lack of paid sick time.

    The Biden administration is pushing a tentative agreement between union leadership and the rail companies that leaves the majority of workers' claims unaddressed. In a vote of the rail union membership, over half the rail workforce and four of the 12 unions representing those employees voted down this proposal.

    Biden will be in Boston on Friday, December 2nd. Join us as we protest the administration's union busting and take a stand for workers!


    Near JFK Library at UMass Boston in Dorchester, corner of University Drive North and Columbia Point, across from the Edward Kennedy Institute. Take the MBTA Red Line to JFK/UMass Boston, then take the shuttle bus to Campus Center.
