Our Revolution Massachusetts (ORMA) was launched January 28, 2017 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Worcester. Over 200 attendees came from all corners of Massachusetts, from the Berkshires to Cape Cod, with representatives from over 40 social and political action groups. It was a fantastic start and your continued participation will be critical to the success of the progressive movement in our state and nation.
ORMA is the officially recognized Massachusetts affiliate of Our Revolution (OR). Together our mission is to establish democracy for the working people of our country by harnessing the transformative energy of political revolution.
Through supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change, and elevating political consciousness, Our Revolution is transforming American politics, to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of everyone and to revitalize American democracy.
Our Revolution Massachusetts has, as objectives, to engage with broad masses of people, progressive/revolutionary allies, and existing regional affiliates in order to achieve our social, economic, and environmental goals; to establish and support new local OR affiliates in throughout the commonwealth; to build effective statewide grassroots-based membership infrastructure such as membership databases and communication networks that connect local issue, task, and action groups and facilitate collaborative leadership; and to establish new working committees to coordinate ORMA’s path forward.
The membership of ORMA has selected five issues for priority work in 2019:
In addition, members are working to transform the Massachusetts Democratic Party into a more progressive organization, engaging in local elections across the state, and preparing for the primary and presidential election of 2020.
