Action Together Massachusetts (ATMA) works to build progressive communities in our Commonwealth and to support targeted, strategic political and social action.
ATMA’s primary focus is taking forceful action to keep Massachusetts blue. We work to directly impact legislation, political races and elected officials in Massachusetts in order to protect our rights and economy. We also push our elected officials to represent our voices in D.C. We encourage conversations about equity and diversity in order to strengthen our commitment to tolerance and justice.
We stand for equal rights, religious tolerance, freedom of the press, environmentalism, science, facts instead of fake news, inclusivity, social justice, economic freedom and fundamental human decency.
We stand against sexism, racism, hate speech, religious intolerance, suppression of the press, climate change denial and violations of civil and human rights.
We focus on four interconnected priorities:
- Connect and share in a safe, online space, organize local get-togethers and meetings, and learn about public events in their area.
- Network with existing progressive groups and build alliances to support their causes.
- Learn in order to understand, discuss and influence local and national issues. We also examine our own biases, judgments and limitations so we may recognize and challenge prejudice in ourselves and in the world around us.
- Act to make a real impact: speak directly to Massachusetts elected officials, campaign for and support progressive candidates, engage in phone, letter, and email campaigns, and attend protests, rallies and marches.
By supporting our group members, coordinating with our regional groups, and partnering with other progressive organizations, Action Together Massachusetts works to protect and build our communities, economy, and institutions through progressive action.
