"Massachusetts Democrats believe in the common good."
We know that the strength of our democracy is dependent on the engagement of thoughtful citizens. That is why our party is organized around the basic notion that individuals working together can make a positive impact on their community. Massachusetts Democrats believe that government plays a vital role in the lives of individuals and communities.”
- From the Platform of the Massachusetts Democratic Party
Welcome to the official website of the Brookline Democratic Town Committee, the Brookline branch of the Democratic Party.

Protecting the Affordable Care Act:
Calls are Making a Difference
Here’s a story from one person who called –
“For those worried about ACA coverage for themselves and their families.
After hearing about the midnight repeal of the pre-existing conditions clause, I called Senator Warren's office. The woman I spoke to said they are being flooded with calls, as are the offices of House Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority Leader McConnell. Senator Warren's staff member told me what would help the most would be to call and thank the five Republican senators who have broken away from the GOP to demand a slow down of the repeal.”
