United Progressive Alumni : Boston, MA Chapter

Boston, MA Chapter

Welcome to the homepage of the Boston UPA Chapter. With one of the highest concentrations of universities of any city in the world, Boston is a hotbed of activism, and the city itself is steeped in a rich history of social and political change, starting from the American Revolution and onwards to the Abolitionist movement, the tumultuous labor struggles of immigrant textiles workers during the 19th century, and the Civil Rights movement of the 60's and 70's. Boston is also home to two of America's leading dissidents: Professor Noam Chomsky at M.I.T., and Professor Howard Zinn, Emeritus, B.U.

The Shaw Memorial
Augustus Saint-Gaudens' Memorial to Robert Gould Shaw and the Massachusetts 54th Regiment - the first African-American combat unit of the Civil War. The Shaw Memorial is just one of many Boston monuments dedicated to America's long and ongoing struggle towards equality and freedom.

Events
