Minnesota DFL Precinct Caucuses

Precinct caucuses are a foundational pillar of the DFL Party’s grassroots history. A precinct is a voting district established by your city or town. A caucus is a gathering of neighbors for the purpose of discussing issues and organizing the local DFL party unit. All parties have their caucuses on the same night, and the next precinct caucus will be on February 25, 2020.

Under Attack: Women’s Reproductive Rights!

SD19 DFL invites you to attend its next Speaker Series presentation, Under Attack: Women’s Reproductive Rights, featuring BreAnna Bemboom, field organizer for Planned Parenthood Action Fund, on Thursday, February 27, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm at the Blue Earth County Library auditorium, 100 E. Main Street, Mankato.

At a time when 73 percent of the American public oppose overturning Roe v. Wade, state legislators across the country are doing their darnedest to take away a woman’s right to choose. Specific restrictions for each state can be found here: https://www.plannedparenthoodaction.org/abortion-access-tool/US.

This is a critical time, folks. We hope you will join us to learn more.

The SD19 DFL Speaker Series seeks to raise awareness about important issues, provide a legislative context and offer ways for individuals to get involved to help enact change.

SD44 DFL Chili Cook-Off

Looking to meet DFLers in the neighborhood? Want to have some fun chatting politics with fellow Democrats? Tuned out of politics but want to try some awesome chili and maybe snag a deal in a silent auction? Well we’ve got the event for you. Join us for the fifth annual SD44 DFL Chili Cook-Off.

Come check out the line up of crockpots for you to taste and vote for your favorite chili. The top three chilis will win prizes. We will also have a silent auction. A number of items will be available to bid on throughout the event. Bidding will close shortly before 8:00 and you do not need to be present to win. Just be sure to sign-in at the front so we have your contact info. There’ll be some appearances from our newly-elected DFLers. Most inportantly, this is a fun time to get to know your neighbors and enjoy a drink. Hope to see you there!

Share this invite with your friends if they are interested in attending. New faces are welcome!.

If you would like to bring a chili to enter, contact the event coordinator Chris Romansky (sporkage2001@yahoo.com). For those entering, we ask that you bring a crockpot of chili, bring something to serve it with and it’d be good to have a bare basics ingredient list there so people with dietary concerns have an idea of what’s inside. We’ll supply the bowls and some toppings. Try to bring your chili around 5:45-6:00 so we can set up before the doors open.

Purchasing an online ticket is a suggested donation to SD44 DFL. No purchase is necessary to attend this event.
