The Wisconsin Working Families Party is a grassroots independent political organization that fights for Wisconsin’s working families 365 days a year — working to raise the minimum wage, get big money out of politics, and advocate for racial justice.More
In Scott Walker’s Wisconsin, too many working families are falling behind. Politicians beholden to big money are pushing down wages and eliminating jobs — all while cutting taxes for the wealthy. Scott Walker clearly answers to the demands of his billionaire donors, like the Koch Brothers. But the truth is, too many Democrats are silent or are too timid when it comes time to really fight for working families.
That’s why we’re standing up to Republicans and to corporate Democrats. We’re working to recruit and elect progressive candidates that share our values for City Council and County Board around the state, as well as for State Assembly and State Senate.
