Minnesota Senate DFL

The Minnesota Senate DFL is committed to working together to build the state all Minnesotans deserve. That includes fighting for equitable policies, opportunities, and protections for all – at home, work, school, in their environment, and at the ballot box. This will allow for healthy and secure families, students who feel supported, and a robust workforce. It will also create a clean environment and strengthen our democracy so that our children can thrive in Minnesota for years to come.

The values we share bring our communities together and serve as a guide for how we make our state work better for all of us, no matter what we look like or where we come from. Those shared values include the following:

Community             Opportunity            Justice           Equality


Support Working Families
Invest in Education
Provide a Clean Future
Protect and Advance Our Democracy
