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

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).
