WRA’s political strength-building programs help achieve political success on the local, state and federal levels for our industry.

Grassroots Involvement
There are several ways to make an impact:

  • Call or email your legislator on key issues
  • Talk face-to-face with legislators at Restaurant Lobby Day it’s our biggest political event of the year
  • Contact WRA on issues impacting you, so we can fight on your behalf
  • Invite others to join you when you meet with legislators, volunteer or attend political fundraisers

WRA’s Political Action Committee (WRA-PAC) helps elect state and local candidates that aim to benefit our industry – the businesses and the people.

PAC combines contributions from individuals to distribute funds to candidates to greater effect (business donations are allocated to Wisconsin RAF). Participate in WRA-PAC today!

Campaign Support for Favorite Candidates
Donate to your favorite candidate through WRA. The WRA Conduit program helps you distribute your personal funds to any candidate for local or state office, at any time. As an individual, you have full control over your political contributions -or- contributions may also be pooled for larger impact.
