ABOUT US

What is the Minnesota DFL Senior Caucus?

Seniors are among those most adversely affected by the policies and acts of the recent administrations in Minnesota and Washington DC  To address the needs of seniors, the  Senior Caucus was formed in 2006 as an organization within the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor  party.

The Caucus works 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. Our united efforts influence voters and policy makers. Our unified voice makes a difference in assuring that the needs of older Minnesotans are addressed in policies and law.

Reaching the goals of the Caucus

The primary goal of the Caucus is to impact public policy by bring focus and accountability to senior issues and by electing representatives who support the following:

  • Affordable, quality health care for all’
  • Fair prescription drug coverage • Affordable housing
  • Safe, livable communities
  • Reliable transportation systems & infrastructure
  • Affordable, quality education for all
  • Fair and equitable tax policies
  • A peaceful world where our grandchildren can succeed

To achieve our goal we:

  • Organize seniors
  • Inform and educate on senior issues
  • Involve seniors in campaigns and policy making
  • Advocate and lobby on behalf of seniors
  • Hold officials accountable
