Fair Wisconsin Political Action Committee (PAC)
The Fair Wisconsin Political Action Committee (PAC) is committed to advancing and achieving equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Wisconsinites through strategic electoral activity, by working to elect pro-fairness individuals in local, state and federal races in Wisconsin.
Fair Wisconsin PAC works to elect pro-fairness individuals through endorsements of specific candidates, financial support and independent expenditure activity in support of state and local candidates.
By ensuring pro-fairness individuals occupy seats at both the state and local level, we are able to focus our educational and advocacy efforts with elected officials on how, not whether, to continue working towards equality in Wisconsin.

How does Fair Wisconsin PAC decide whom to endorse?
In evaluating candidates, the PAC Committee considers numerous factors: the candidates’ answers to our questionnaire and/or participation in endorsement interviews, their pro-fairness (or anti-fairness) voting record if applicable, and their ability to demonstrate a long term commitment to protecting and advancing the civil rights of the LGBT community. Candidates are endorsed when the PAC Committee determines that the candidate will be the best strategic choice for the community in casting their ballots. Fair Wisconsin PAC stands with elected officials who do the hard work and cast their votes for fairness.
