The Polish Centrala of Minneapolis, (Centrala Polonii w Minneapolis, previously the Polish National Department) coordinated efforts of Polish Americans to aid the cause of Poland during WWI. The Minneapolis, Minnesota, branch, founded before 1931, grew into an autonomous organization which represented the community's major organizations, initially Polish Americans, and, later, also the V.F.W. It sponsored patriotic celebrations, and local political activism such as resolutions supporting candidates for local office.
