About

Boston Study Group (BSG) is an organization dedicated to working towards a just and equitable society.  We organize study groups, monthly meetings, lecture series and other social activities in the Boston area to create educational and organizing infrastructure to carry forward our mission.

Our membership is comprised of individuals, families, students, scholars, academics, and workers who share our vision of equality and upliftment of people. We are particularly interested in creating support structures and working with students from historically marginalized backgrounds.

We are inspired by those who worked for human welfare – from Buddha and Sant Ravidas to Savitrimai and Jyotibha Phule to Periyar and Ambedkar.
