Become an ABC member!

A Better Cambridge is committed to building a diverse and sustainable city, with housing opportunities for all people. Through education and advocacy, we seek to impact the public conversation and encourage thoughtful, smart planning and policy.

We need your support to continue to grow and:

  • Educate the community about housing development and smart growth issues in expert-led forums that are free and open to the public
  • Influence the public conversation while fostering constructive engagement and sensible compromise while advocating for policies that sustain and nourish the Cambridge we love
  • Strengthen our collaboration with neighboring organizations and act as a model for YIMBY groups in Greater Boston and across New England
  • Inform our community about current issues facing the city and region through our listserv, our monthly newsletter, and our Action Alerts that mobilize neighbors to contact elected representatives and testify at City Council meetings.

Membership is a great way to help A Better Cambridge further its goals. As a member, you have the opportunity to actively influence the direction and focus of ABC's work with access to member-only meetings, emails, and polls, and the ability to participate in subcommittees. 

The minimum suggested membership fee is $25, but if that's a barrier to you just let us know! Any additional support beyond the suggested membership level is most appreciated.

Thank you,

Jesse Kanson-Benanav

ABC Chairman
