"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.

Opportunities to Turn Red Seats Blue

Dear Friends,

There were some great Democratic victories this week across the country.  Let’s hope that this is a sign of things to come for 2018, and that people have realized that we need to reject the Trump Administration’s divisive policies.  Here’s two local ways you can take part in winning back some seats for the Democrats – one in Alabama, one in Maine.  Looking forward to more victories together.

Meet Doug Jones!

Democratic Candidate,

For Alabama U.S. Senate

Wednesday, November 15th 12:30-1:30 (light refreshments provided)

Please join us in support of Doug Jones, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Alabama’s December 12th special election to replace Jeff Sessions, now the Trump Administration's Attorney General. 

Doug served as a United States Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama and rose to prominence for prosecuting the remaining two Ku Klux Klan perpetrators of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing which killed four African-American girls. He will attend this event in person.

Real Politics poll average shows Jones within 6 points of Roy Moore in a state Trump won by 28 points. 

Doug's opponent is Roy Moore, a right wing extremist and former judge who was twice removed for failing to comply with Federal laws. The Alabama Republican primary was expensive and rancorous resulting in a nominee who is unacceptable to many in the party.  Doug, meanwhile, has proved to be an effective candidate with clear positions and an ability to challenge his opponent.  For all of these reasons, he has a much better chance to win a low turnout election than has traditionally been the case in Alabama.

We believe supporting Jones is an effective cause for Force Multiplier, which brings together diverse groups to increase the impact of their grassroots work in support of democratic values and candidates.
