Welcome to the Boston Ward 4 Democratic Committee. We advocate for progressive candidates and causes at all levels of government.

With a core mission of advancing the progressive policy initiatives of the Massachusetts Democratic Party, Boston’s Ward 4 Democratic Committee plays a vital role in promoting economic and social justice, leadership accountability, and broad community involvement.

When we endorse candidates for public office, it carries weight. When we conduct forums and encourage voter participation, it has impact. When we support legislation and ballot initiatives, it lifts our communities.

Thanks for joining us at the 12th Annual Ward 4 Ice Cream Social, co-hosted by Mayor Michelle Wu

Our goal is to organize around progressive issues that are in the platform but not supported by the Party or the convention.” On Zoom Register
