Every spring, Brookline PAX endorses progressive candidates in Brookline's Annual Town Election. Please help kick off the 2020 election season with a donation to the Brookline PAX Campaign Committee.*

Donations to the Brookline PAX Campaign Committee support the election of endorsed candidates with a town wide mailing to likely voters, newspaper advertising, and, in many races, additional campaign materials. Your financial support is critical to that effort.

*Please note that Campaign Committee donations are separate from and do not count toward Brookline PAX dues.
