About Us

DFL stands for Democratic-Farmer-Laborer. We are the party of the people, with a long and proud tradition in Minnesota. It was the people-first policies, enacted by DFL leadership (along with progressive Republicans), that helped to move Minnesota into the forefront of the nation on economic, health, education and social justice initiatives.
