Revere man charged with rape, held without bail By Christopher Roberson The Boston DSA chapter, which has been active for more than 30 years, has provided Edwards with signifi cant support in past political races, including volunteers and community door knocking. The purpose of DSA is to create a mass democratic socialist movement in the country with the goal of society’s transformation from capitalism to socialism. DSA espouses various leftist political philosophies, including “defunding the police/refunding communities” and “single-payer Medicare for All,” according to its website. Edwards has also been endorsed by Our Revolution, an organization that has advocated, among other things, for the defunding of police departments in Massachusetts. She has spoken in support of an “alternative police mechanism that is unarmed” and lauded Boston’s Ballot 1 initiative that will give the Boston City Council authority to cut the police budget.
