Pioneer Valley Libertarian Association














The Pioneer Valley Libertarian Association covers roughly the area encompassed by the 413 area code, extending from the New York border and the Berkshires in the west to the center of the state and Worcester, the third largest city in New England. We support and assist local chapters and individuals throughout the Pioneer Valley, the Berkshires and the rest of Western Massachusetts.

Philosophy of the Libertarian Party

The Libertarian movement is dedicated to individual liberty. We stand for small government, low taxes, and the whole Bill of Rights. 'Liberty' includes freedom from excessive government interference in our personal lives and freedom from oppressive taxation. We support balancing the budget and paying off the national debt. More about the Libertarian movement can be found on the pages of the Central Massachusetts Liberty Coalition and in the the National Libertarian Party's Statement of Principles and the Libertarian Party Platform.

Some of our members belong to the National Libertarian Party, while others are associated with the Libertarian Party of Massachusetts (the Partido Liberal).

However, we are an independent, democratically-run society. When the former Libertarian Association of Massachusetts was absorbed by the Libertarian Party of Massachusetts, we became the oldest continuously-existing libertarian group in the Commonwealth.

History of PVLA 

You have reached the headquarters of the Pioneer Valley Libertarian Association, founded in 1995 by John Brickner. The Pioneer Valley Libertarian Association is an educational and civic club. We have regular meetings and publish a monthly newsletter.

We encourage members to play an active political role in their communities. Some members hold political office. Others have run for office, at levels from Town Planning Board to United States Senate. Many of us help campaign for our friends. Several members formed the Liberty Tree Small Government Low Taxes Political Action Committee, the only Libertarian State PAC in Massachusetts.
