Johnny D's Uptown, Davis Square, Somerville, MA
With a special late show featuring HONK!

Costumes Meet Community at Gragger!

Gragger! brought together over 300 people on Saturday for a night of joyous revelry and political community. For the fifth straight year, our radical Purim party attracted a multigenerational crowd eager to “boo” at the appropriate times and dance until the wee hours of the morning. 

Strike! Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Bread & Roses

“Short pay, all out!” That was the rallying cry of Lawrence textile workers in 1912. We celebrate the history of the strike and honor today's ongoing labor struggles with a series of spring events.

Projects & Workshops

When the economic crisis hit in 2008, young adults gathered for a series of living room conversations. We talked about how the economic crisis was affecting us, and we talked about how we want to respond to it as a community. Since then, we have worked to build Boston Workmen's Circle as a radical mutual aid society for today – a place where we can help each other to live more sustainable, communal, and thoughtful lives.

Shabbat as Resistance and Refuge: A Young Adult Shabes Dinner and Discussion

Join us for a discussion about how shabes offers us a model for resisting the pressures and injustices of our modern economic system. We will use the ideas of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, a theologan and social justice activist, as a springboard for discussion.
