About Us

The Disability Caucus works to promote the involvement of individuals with disabilities in the political process, increase the participation of members of the disability community within the DFL, and encourages people with disabilities to run for both party and public office. The caucus also serves as a forum for discussing and advocating for individuals with disabilities who may face issues relating to DFL campaigns, state elections, and daily life.

The Disability Caucus advises and advocates within the DFL for full inclusion of people with disabilities.  ACCOMMODATIONS for individuals attending DFL meetings, caucuses, conventions, or other events, are managed by DFL Party Affairs (email accommodations@dfl.org or call the ACCOMMODATIONS HOTLINE at 651-251-6380).

The DFL Disability Caucus does not provide or manage accommodations for individuals.
