Citizen Action of Wisconsin is a coalition of labor, senior citizen, environmental, civil rights and other organizations that traditionally back Democratic candidates in state and local elections. Before 2014 the independent expenditure committee last reported spending $60,000 on online ads to support Democrat Tom Barrett against Republican Governor Scott Walker in a June 5, 2012 recall election.

While the group filed documents showing it intended to make independent expenditures supporting Democrat Penny Bernard Schaber in the open Senate District 19 election, it only reported spending in opposition to Republican Governor Scott Walker.

Last active election: 2012

This organization is registered with the Government Accountability Board as an independent disbursement committee following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC.
