DOT Not for Sale
Dorchester Not for Sale is a coalition of Dorchester residents and organizations worried about our community’s future. We are tenants, homeowners, and small landlords who live, work and play in Dorchester. We come from all walks of life and include Vietnamese, Cape Verdean Creole, Spanish and English voices of the community. We have been reaching out and discussing ways to make sure that #PlanGlovers does not displace any current residents, lead to good and higher incomes, protects the ethnic and cultural enclaves, improves community safety and quality of life for all, and centers those most impacted.
We are committed to building a multi-racial, multi-cultural, multi-lingual, multi-generational REAL community process that centers Dorchester residents most at risk of displacement in decision making. We will build together and fight for a vision of what we want and need in our community and seek unity as tenants, homeowners, and small landlords.
Our alliance includes the following groups: Asian American Resource Workshop (AARW), New England United for Justice (NEU4J), Mass Affordable Housing Alliance, Greater Bowdoin Geneva Neighborhood Association, City Life / Vida Urbana, Dorchester People for Peace

Fighting Southeast Asian Deportation
Freedom for All Massachusetts
As an organization committed to empowering all members of our community, AARW is in coalition with Freedom for All Massachusetts, an organization that seeks to uphold rights and protections of trans people in Massachusetts. This November, the Commonwealth faces the first-ever statewide vote on non-discrimination protections for transgender people. A YES vote on Question 3 is a vote to uphold basic protections for our transgender neighbors, family and friends in Massachusetts. In preparation for this year's elections, we are partnering with the National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance (NQAPIA) to educate and rally Asian American voters to vote YES on 3 as a step towards securing better protections for trans people in our communities.
