"Massachusetts Democrats believe in the common good."

Welcome to the official website of the Brookline Democratic Town Committee.

The Town Committee works to build a grassroots movement in Brookline in order to elect Democratic candidates to state and national offices through voter registration and education, voter contact via phone banks, door to door canvassing, social media and other events and activities. 

We hope this website will help you connect with other Democrats in Brookline to work on behalf of the issues and candidates that matter most to you, especially during these times that require us all to actively defend our values.

Take Action

On Paid Family & Medical Leave and $15 Minimum Wage

Raise Up Massachusetts Congress at State House – Tuesday, May 8

All year, we’ve been pushing for the passage of Paid Family and Medical Leave and a $15 Minimum Wage: both on the ballot and in the legislature. We collected over 174,000 signatures to put both questions on the 2018 ballot, have made over 125,000 phone calls to legislative districts across the state, and turned out over 1,500 residents to community briefings across Massachusetts.

Now, we’re going big and taking our statewide campaign right to the State House. On May 8th, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. we are going to the State House for our largest legislative rally to date: The Raise Up Congress.

We will be joined by community, faith, and labor leaders from across the State, as well as activists like you who support a higher minimum wage and paid leave. We want to make sure that folks from across the Commonwealth can join us on this historic day.

To RSVP and learn more about the event, please contact bdtc@brooklinedems.org

If you are unable to make it to the event but still want to help us pass these policies, sign up to join our phone program to keep these campaigns moving forward.  You can also sign up for that by e-mailing bdtc@brooklinedems.org for information.
