MADISON – The Collective Political Action Committee, a national group working to address the challenge of African American underrepresentation in elected seats of power throughout the United States, has endorsed Mahlon Mitchell for Governor of Wisconsin.

“Wisconsin has a rich history of African-American leadership, from the late Vel Phillips to organizers working in underrepresented communities as vocal advocates for equity and justice. It’s time their groundwork and legacy is represented at the highest level of government,” said Mitchell. “My campaign and vision for a Wisconsin that rises together is intentionally inclusive of communities of color, their experience and ideas. I appreciate Collective PAC for recognizing this campaign and my candidacy as one who will fight for, include and uplift communities that are far too often forgotten or left behind.”
