Neighbor to Neighbor Massachusetts is a progressive organization of working class, multi-racial, and multi-ethnic people working together to build political and economic power to improve the quality of lives in our communities. As members, we lead the change ourselves through education & training, issue & electoral organizing, policy advocacy, alliance building, community-controlled economic development, and holding decision-makers accountable.
We seek to create a powerful movement for economic and social justice that builds a participatory and responsive democracy to transform people’s lives and the political and economic structures that impact them. This movement must be led by working class women and people of color people representing all different racial and ethnic backgrounds in the region.
Neighbor to Neighbor Massachusetts grew out of Neighbor to Neighbor, a national organization which focused on organizing in Central America in the 1980s, and around health care reform in the early 1990s. In the mid-1990s, N2N-MA re-evaluated our mission to focus on building power in low-income communities through an economic justice agenda. We formed the Working Family Agenda Coalition and are working to build a progressive majority in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
