MISSION and HISTORY

The DFL Senior Caucus Mission is to involve seniors throughout Minnesota in the political process, to provide a vehicle for their active participation in the DFL party, and to promote programs and legislation that protect and enhance the lives of seniors.

The DFL Senior Caucus was founded in the spring of 2006 with the goal of increasing senior participation and influence in the Minnesota DFL Party and the halls of Government by: 

  • encouraging senior participation in the political process
  • bringing focus and accountability to senior issues
  • speaking up and securing support for issues

We are the voice of Seniors in the DFL Party and in the public assemblies and legislative halls.  Join us and make our voice stronger.

LOCAL CHAPTERS

The DFL Senior Caucus members residing within a particular Minnesota U.S. Congressional District, or smaller geographic area, may organize and operate a local Chapter of the DFL Senior Caucus in that district or area in order to further the purposes and activities of the Senior Caucus. 

Senior Caucus members seeking to form such a Chapter agree to operate under the Senior Caucus Charter and must apply to the Senior Caucus Board for recognition as an official Chapter. 

Chapters must semiannually report their activities to the Senior Caucus Board by February 1 and August 1 of each year.
