Village United Political Action Committee, VUPAC, started as the brain-child of Dr. Michelle Cyr-Widolff and Mr. Charles "Chuck" Burk following the outcome of the November 8th, 2016 election. As many struggled to figure out what the election's outcome meant to them and struggled for a way to get involved, both Chuck and Michelle knew that they had a shared vision, passion, and drive to effect change in a meaningful way. From that vision sprung Village United PAC.
VUPAC's mission is to support progressive down-ballot candidates that come from historically under represented groups of people. Focusing down ballot is important to the founders of VUPAC, because down ballot politics is where some of the real work happens. Often these down ballot candidates and causes are underfunded and underrepresented. It is our goal to shine a light on them. Focusing on minority candidates and causes is imperative if we want broader, more-inclusive legislation for women, people of color, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, and other marginalized groups.
