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.

    The word capitalism gets thrown around a lot these days. Some people want to preserve it, some want to reform it, and some want to overthrow it. But what exactly is the capitalist system? Where did it come from, and how does it work? Without the answers to these questions, it's impossible to properly engage in today's politics.

    Join us on March 4th at 7pm as we dive into the nature of capitalism at Boston DSA's Socialist Night School. We'll be introducing a framework called "historical materialism" to help us understand how capitalism developed and how it functions. This is a beginner-level class, so no previous knowledge is necessary—just come ready to learn and discuss!
