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.

Fair Wisconsin PAC endorsements for the 2024 election cycle
Fair Wisconsin PAC, when considering endorsements, looks not only at the issues the candidates support but their track record in office. Fair Wisconsin is proud to endorse these candidates who have been outspoken members of and allies to the LGBTQ+ and transgender and nonbinary community.
"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.”
