Why LPAC? LPAC, a first of its kind lesbian political action committee, is working to give lesbians a meaningful seat at the table in politics.
Today is a great day for LPAC. We raised more than our $50,000 goal from LPAC supporters across the country this past week. And the LPAC Advisory Board is making good on our promise, we are matching our supporters' generosity. We’re cutting a check for nearly $112,000 in support of Rep. Tammy Baldwin today!
The money will go directly towards funding TV ads on the air in four key cities in Wisconsin this week.
We have another big piece of good news:LPAC is announcing the first round of slate candidates and campaigns. From supporting the pro-marriage equality ballot question in Maine, and strong candidates like Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Donna Edwards and Gov. Peter Shumlin who encompass LPAC’s values to defending against an anti-choice ballot initiative in Florida, to positively changing the makeup of the Michigan Supreme Court as it prepares to hear critical cases on women’s and gay rights, we are happy to share the news!
In the wake of Rep. Todd Akin’s horrendous and clearly factually incorrect comments on rape, and the continuous anti-gay, anti-woman actions of many candidates and elected officials this election cycle, there isn’t a more critical time to elect candidates who are loud, proud voices for our values.
I hope you will check out what we're all about and join us, get involved in making a positive change in politics. After decades of being a small subset of players in women's rights and LGBT rights political efforts, the women of LPAC are stepping up to get organized like never before, aiming to give lesbians a real and meaningful seat at the table. With significant resources, LPAC plans to make a true impact for lesbians in the 2012 election cycle and beyond.
