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.

  • New Member Reading Group TUESDAY GROUP

    December 1, 2020  7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

    Everyone new to socialist activism is invited to a four-session intro reading group on the basics of socialism.

    Each session will discuss topics that are the kind you are likely to get into with workmates, family members or fellow activists. Topics will include "What is democratic socialism?", “Why do socialists talk so much about workers?”; “Doesn’t socialism always end in dictatorship”; and “Don’t the rich deserve to keep most of their money?” among many others.

    We want this reading group to provide a basic knowledge of socialist goals and analysis in a low-key atmosphere which, we hope, will make learning fun and motivate new DSA’ers to get more deeply involved in the work of our chapter. There will also be opportunities to learn about the different campaigns of our chapter and how you can get involved

    The first session will be on Tuesday December 1st and in total there will be four sessions (December 8th, 15th, and 22nd). There will be about 25 pages of reading for each session. We will be reading an introduction to socialism that we have written ourselves, complemented with some other articles.

    To sign up, get more information about the zoom details, and to get a copy of the reading material, please reach out to abcsofsocialism@gmail.com
