Endorsements

Mass Alliance runs two candidate support programs. During legislative years, we endorse candidates for State Rep and State Senate who will carry forward our progressive legislative agenda. These candidates represent a consensus of our board of progressive organizations. During municipal years, we run a Rising Stars program in which we support a small number of progressive municipal candidates. This is not an endorsements program, rather we invest in a few local leaders across the Commonwealth and support them in their campaigns.

Our questionnaire is the first step to a Mass Alliance endorsement or Rising Stars nomination. Reach out to a staff member to obtain and fill out the questionnaire.
