CSfC Becomes a Chapter of Progressive Mass

Born out of the 2008 Obama campaign, Cambridge-Somerville for Change has been organizing for the past four and a half years to help elect progressives to office and pass progressive policies at the state and national level.  We have had great success, winning most of the elections we worked on (from Patrick in 2010 to Obama and Warren in 2012 to Ed Markey just last week), and even won some issue campaigns as well (starting with the 2010 health care reform).  Cambridge and Somerville are full of dedicated progressive activists, and CSfC's 1,000+ members are among the most dedicated.  Yet despite this capacity, the CSfC steering committee has felt that by working independently of any state or national organization, we limited our ability to have a broader impact.  For this reason, in May of 2013 we proposed that CSfC become the Cambridge and Somerville chapter of Progressive Massachusetts... and CSfC members voted to approve this proposal!

Come to the Progressive Massachusetts Kickoff on October 2nd!

On Sunday, Oct. 2nd, a new statewide organization called Progressive Massachusetts will be going public.  This organization is built on similar principles to Cambridge-Somerville for Change, with essentially the same strategy -- fighting for progressive candidates, organizing around democratically determined issues, and building a powerful organization through grassroots organizing.  What's so exciting about this new organization is that it's taking these principles and strategy to the statewide level!  Having a statewide ally with which we are so aligned can significantly expand CSfC's impact.

We hope you can attend the kickoff of Progressive Mass. on October 2nd.  RSVP here. More details below the fold.


Cambridge-Somerville for Change is an all-volunteer community group dedicated to harnessing the grassroots energy and spirit of change inspired by the Obama campaign. Our organizing work includes electoral and issue-based campaigns at the local, state, and national level. Our members have chosen to work on promoting economic fairness, comprehensive health care reform, creating policies that conserve energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, provide for fair and adequate access to public transportation, and promoting in-state tuition for immigrant youth.

This is an organization built by and for you, the community, and we look forward to your participation and feedback. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions about getting involved, please email
