Our Mission

The LGBT Bar Association of Wisconsin is an inclusive group and welcomes anyone who wants to join or support our mission,  LGBTQ individuals and allies alike. The Bar was founded in 2014 with a primary focus on increasing the visibility of LGBTQ individuals and allies within the legal profession. We hope to foster a sense of community among LGBTQ individuals and allies within the legal community and beyond and to bring awareness to LGBT issues throughout the state.

Our mission is to (a) promote the professional development and advancement of gay, bisexual, lesbian, and transgender legal professionals, including practicing lawyers, non-practicing lawyers, judges, law educators, government officials, law students, and other legal professionals; (b) provide a supportive environment that encourages the exchange of ideas and information of importance to the gay, bisexual, lesbian, and transgender professional community; and (c) advance the elimination of discrimination based upon actual or perceived homosexuality, bisexuality, transgender, transsexuality, gender-related identity, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, age, marital status, disability, or military status in the community at large through educational initiatives, training programs, and collaboration with organizations committed to the same.
