The Cambridge Residents Alliance is committed to preserving and promoting a livable, affordable, and diverse Cambridge community. We are for development that benefits communities, not tears them apart; development that contributes to the social, economic, political and cultural progress of people; and for development that affirms the right of people to shape their communities and destinies. We work to increase public participation in governance and policy-making at the neighborhood level and citywide through education, organizing and impacting elected officials. By joining you indicate your support for the above mission.
The organization holds monthly public meetings, periodically sponsor public forums addressing pressing Cambridge issues, and send out useful updates and information through e-mail to members. Voting on organizational business requires making an annual dues donation of $10.00 or more. Member's donations provide the financial support needed to sustain communications and education. Names and donations are public information and reported annually to the Commonwealth.
