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 all levels of government, we are able to focus our educational and advocacy efforts with elected officials on how, not whether, to continue working toward LGBTQ+ equity and justice in Wisconsin.

 President & Vice President

Joe Biden & Kamala Harris

Fair Wisconsin PAC is proud to endorse President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for re-election. The Biden-Harris administration has been the most pro-LGBTQ+ administration our country has ever seen. From signing the Respect For Marriage Act and expanding health equity through the Affordable Care Act to defending abortion access in court and preventing discrimination based on gender identity in health care, emergency housing, and homelessness services, the administration has delivered tangible results for our community. While there is more work to do, the White House is taking steps to address anti-transgender violence and working to ensure that LGBTQ+ people are in the room where decisions are being made.

At a time when anti-LGBTQ+ policies, rhetoric and hate crimes are increasing, we need to continue having a strong ally for equality in the White House. The choice could not be clearer in this election. Read our full statement here.

U.S. Senate

Tammy Baldwin

Fair Wisconsin PAC stands firmly behind Senator Tammy Baldwin, and we are proud to endorse her candidacy for a third term in the United States Senate.

Throughout her career, Tammy has been a tireless champion for all of Wisconsin's families, from leading the charge to pass the Respect for Marriage Act that codified same-sex and interracial marriage to cosponsoring the Women's Health Protection Act that would allow women to make their own healthcare decisions.

Senator Baldwin has also been a fierce voice for Wisconsin's working class, ensuring that communities across the state--from Superior to Beloit, and Madison to Milwaukee--have the resources they need to build critical infrastructure, create family-sustaining jobs, combat the dual opioid and mental health crises, and support the most vulnerable in their communities.

We look forward to re-electing Senator Baldwin in November 2024 and continuing to work alongside her in the fight for full LGBTQ+ equality.

U.S. Congress - 4th District

Gwen Moore

Fair Wisconsin PAC is proud to endorse U.S. Representative Gwen Moore for another term in Congress. Rep. Moore started her career when the Defense of Marriage Act gripped the political main stage, canvassing on her beliefs that the 14th Amendment guarantees equal protection of the laws to all persons regardless of gender or sexuality, and regardless of whom they want to marry. Rep. Moore is a lifelong ally to the LGBTQ+ community, a member of the Congressional LGBTQ+ Caucus, co-sponsor and outspoken advocate for the Equality Act, a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, a member and former whip of the Congressional Black Caucus, and a member and former Co-chair of the Congressional Women's Caucus.”

U.S. Congress - 2nd District

Mark Pocan

Fair Wisconsin PAC is proud to endorse U.S. Representative Mark Pocan for another term in Congress. Rep. Pocan is one of the nine LGBTQ+ elected members of Congress, Co-Chair of the Congressional LGBTQ+ Caucus, and former chair and current member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Rep. Pocan played a key role in promoting, advancing, and eventually passing landmark legislation in the House, including the Equality Act which is a comprehensive nondiscrimination bill that adds sexual orientation and gender identity to federal civil rights laws, in addition to protections for women, people of color, and people of all faiths. Rep. Pocan’s fight to expand civil rights comes at a time when an unprecedented wave of anti-LGBTQ+ bills sweeps across the nation, and we know he will continue this fight as he continues serving the Second District of Wisconsin in Congress.

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 voting record if applicable, and their ability to demonstrate a long term commitment to protecting and advancing the civil rights of the LGBTQ+ community, along with the ability to deliver results.
