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.
