What is the Minnesota DFL Senior Caucus?

The Senior Caucus was formed in 2006 as an organization within the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor party to address the needs of retirees, individuals over the age of 55, and senior citizens.  Seniors are among those most adversely affected by the policies and acts of the administrations in Minnesota and Washington DC

The Senior 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.

Please Join Us!

Join us and become an active member of our DFL Community Caucus to help us address the needs of seniors. You can join one or more of our local chapters and any of our committees leading us on vital issues that concern us all. Your membership allows us to reach more seniors and have a larger voice on issues. You become part of a mission and movement to address the needs of senior citizens across Minnesota.

Making a better world for our Children, our Grandchildren, and Ourselves!

MN DFL Seniors Group Shot

Who We Are

We are seniors affiliated with the MN Democrat party (DFL) who created the DFL Senior Caucus in order to influence government on behalf of anyone 55 or older.  We believe what Paul Wellstone said: “We all do better when we all do better!”

What We Do

We listen to seniors, whether they are still working or whether they are retired, to learn what they want now and in the future. We actively support and work with DFL legislators, candidates and officials willing to address senior needs.

Where We Are

We have a state-wide board that works with Minnesota State and Federal Officials to advance programs addressing senior needs. We have critical committees that develop our programs, connect with seniors, and lobby our legislators. We have a network of local chapters across Minnesota, North, South, and Central promoting local senior needs and keeping seniors across the state up-to-date.

When I retired, I decided to join DFL Senior Caucus to continue my support for people programs including Medicare, Social Security, health care, voting rights, informed decision-making about political decisions and the pleasure of joining together with those who support these issues…
