Fair Wisconsin Political Action Committee (PAC)

The Fair Wisconsin Political Action Committee (PAC) is committed to advancing and achieving equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) 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, targeted financial support, and independent expenditure activity in support of state and local candidates.

By ensuring pro-fairness individuals occupy seats at the federal, state and local levels, we are able to focus our educational and advocacy efforts with elected officials on how, not whether, to continue working toward equality in Wisconsin.


Candidates and Managers:

Our fall legislative and statewide election endorsement processes will soon be underway.

Please reach out to Sean O'Brien if you are interested in being included for consideration.

Who is Fair Wisconsin PAC?

In 2010, Fair Wisconsin PAC and the Human Rights League PAC joined forces to create one statewide LGBTQ political action committee. Fair Wisconsin PAC is an active member of Wisconsin Progress, a state-based organization committed to recruiting, training and developing progressive leaders at the state and local levels.

Members of the PAC Committee:
Nancy Nusbaum, Treasurer, De Pere
Katie Barikmo, Cedarburg
Rebecca Bonesteel, Hudson
Ross Draegert, Fox Point
Gary Goyke, Madison
Laurie Guilbault, Wauwatosa
Daniel Martin, Milwaukee
Mark Webster, Madison
Deon Young, Milwaukee

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 LGBTQ community, and to deliver results. Candidates are endorsed when the PAC Committee determines that the candidate will be the best strategic choice for the community in casting their ballots.
