"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.

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.

Join Force Multiplier in Supporting Out-of-State Candidates Turning Red Seats Blue

(a joining together of grassroots political groups in Brookline/Newton/Wellesley and beyond)

For June we are focused on two special elections to replace Trump appointees (both on June 20).  We encourage you to consider supporting Archie Parnell in South Carolina and/or John Osoff in Georgia. We have set up Force Multiplier contribution links and encourage you to phone bank for Osoff.  See details below

Archie Parnell, 5th Congressional District, SC

Parnell is a very long shot, but there are strategic reasons to support him:

 ·        Given the small number of 2017 races, many argue we must engage in every battle. People said that the Kansas open seat earlier this  year was unwinnable, and then the Dem came within a few points of winning, even without support or funds from the Dem Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and nationally people didn't mobilize.  What would more resources have done?  

·        An unexpectedly close race will send a message, put the Republicans on notice that they can take nothing for granted  And it will get publicity, on the same day as Ossoff's closely-watched race.

·        You can contribute to Parnell here

John Ossoff, 6th Congressional District, GA

Ossoff has a good chance of winning against the Republican (best known for leading the Susan Komen Foundation to terminate its grants to Planned Parenthood). Ossoff is endorsed by John Lewis and has a lot of support, but turn-out will be key.
