Fair Wisconsin Inc., Fair Wisconsin Political Action Committee and the LGBT Conduit work together to elect pro-fairness and LGBT leaders who will champion the cause of LGBT equality, and to ensure LGBT and allied people are able to fully participate in our democracy.
Engaging LGBT and allied people in the electoral process.
Ensuring that LGBT people and our allies have the ability to participate in the electoral process is critical. Whether we are registering young people to vote for the first time, turning LGBT and allied people out to vote, or training clerks and poll workers about how to best support trans* voters, Fair Wisconsin Education Fund is on the front lines of every election, conducting aggressive and sophisticated civic engagement activities.

Endorsing pro-fairness champions.
In order to pass pro-fairness ordinances and legislation, we need to have pro-fairness elected officials who stand on the side of equality. Regardless of political affiliation, the abundance of elected leaders we have worked with across the state is humbling and exciting. We are grateful to all who have and continue to take action to build inclusive communities and workplaces for LGBT people.
Through the Fair Wisconsin PAC, we are proud to formally endorse pro-fairness candidates for local, state, and federal office in Wisconsin. Each spring we identify and vet hundreds of candidates running for school boards, city councils, county boards and executive offices. In the fall of even numbered years, we make endorsements in local, state legislative, statewide and federal elections.
If you’d like to be made aware of our endorsements, be sure to join our email list today!

Conducting electoral activities.
In key races, Fair Wisconsin often engages in direct voter contact efforts to support the election of pro-fairness candidates. This work is not done in coordination with candidate campaigns or committees, and is focused on ensuring our members and pro-fairness voters know which candidate will be a champion for LGBT equality.
Powering the movement.
A partnership of Fair Wisconsin and Wisconsin Progress, The LGBT Conduit builds the power of the LGBT community in state and local elections in Wisconsin, by providing a way for LGBT and allied individuals to maximize the impact of their political giving. When you contribute to candidates through the LGBT Conduit, you demonstrate your support for LGBT equality, and the broad and growing support that LGBT Wisconsinites have in the greater community.
