Ensure that lawmakers in Minnesota's political parties make safe, affordable homes for all a priority by submitting a caucus resolution. Parties vote on submitted resolutions, and if a resolution is passed, the party considers it for incorporation into their legislative platform.

Submitting a resolution is simple, and it's a key step in advancing Homes for All's legislative agenda for 2020 and beyond, helping to ensure that all Minnesotans have a safe and affordable place to call home.

Here's how you can take action today:

  1. Download the Minnesota Republican or Minnesota DFL resolution form. Find information from other Minnesota political parties here
  2. Complete the form. Include the following resolution language: "Prioritize solutions to our housing crisis, including: 
    • Dramatically expanding resources for affordable homes, rental and homeownership, including protecting public housing and preserving what is affordable today 
    • Protecting the rights of renters, balanced with the rights of property owners
    • Preventing displacement and providing stability, with adequate shelter, emergency services, and housing supports for the needs of all Minnesotans."
  3. Attend the party caucus of your choice for your precinct on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. Find your caucus location
  4. Propose your resolution:
    • Stand to be recognized by the chair and say, “I move that this precinct support the following resolution."
    • Read the resolution.
  5. If the resolution passes, hand the document to the Caucus Chair which will then be forwarded appropriately for consideration at the district and/or state levels.
