Veterans Caucus

The Minnesota Veterans’ Caucus serves as a voice for veterans in the political process, advises the DFL Party and candidates on veterans’ issues, and advocates for veterans and their families.


Calling all Minnesota Veterans and Military Families…..
The DFL Veterans Caucus needs you.

A caucus is only as good as its goals. With this in mind we would submit that the caucus has four fundamental goals that all efforts should support, namely:

1) Endorsements: Putting our caucus behind worthy candidates is a vital use of the caucus,
2) Boots on the ground: Putting our caucus efforts behind worthy candidates is important,
3) Fundraising: Necessary to get the word out on support and to support efforts to build the caucus,
4) Legislative action: Necessary to work with our legislature and local community efforts to create and support efforts to support vets and mil families.

We encourage all caucus members to consider volunteering to move forward one of these efforts.

We appreciate your support of the caucus and our efforts!

We are seeking to grow our caucus and our relevance to all corners of the state. There is much to gain by engaging veterans and military families in the legislative process and political action. Help us make this happen.

Thank you,

The MN DFL Veterans Caucus


The Veteran’s Caucus of the Minnesota DFL Party was established to address the concerns of the state’s 460,000 veterans. We are also interested in actionable policy issues affecting active duty military members, reservists, National Guard, family members and survivors. Veterans caucus membership is open to members of the Minnesota DFL Party. One does not need to be a veteran to be a member of the caucus.
