Committees

Corporate Power

The Committee Against Corporate Power will pursue the primary goal of educating our fellow citizens, and do what is necessary, by means of legally exercising Our Constitutional Rights, to eliminate the corporation’s status of “personhood.”

Monthly Meetings at 6:30 on the first Thursday at the DFL Headquarters.

Environment Committee

This committee, Itasca Environment, works to raise awareness of local issues that correspond with the DFL Ongoing Platform (under Agriculture, Consumer Issues, Energy, Natural Resources, Transportation) and subsequently gain support for the DFL party as a conduit for environmental sustainability. Itasca Environment promotes activism in Earth Circle (a nonpartisan local environmental organization) and endorses their mission to inspire action for positive change.

Meetings are called as needed; the committee attends Earth Circle at 2 pm on the third Saturday of each month at Grand Rapids Public Library.

End of Life Options

This committee is temporarily inactive.

Dedicated to educating and expanding compassionate end of life choices for all Minnesotans. Our goal is to inform the general public regarding the choices available as one approaches the end of life.

Health Care

We believe that all citizens should have a right to complete health care, including dental, and eye and hearing care. It should not depend on a job, the amount of money you have or your position in a community. This is known as universal, Single Payer Health Care.

Our mission is to educate ourselves and others to understand the problems and hurdles we face in making this a reality. Then to find the understanding within the community of Minnesota to work for and back legislation already written for Single Payer Health Care.

Monthly Meetings at 4:30 on the Fourth Monday at the DFL Headquarters.
