This organization creates and executes game plans for issue and election campaigns to support progressive candidates, equal access to health care, clean energy policies, quality public education and tax fairness. USAction’s board of directors is dominated by labor and organizations that back progressive social and economic policies.

In April 2011 it registered with the state's Government Accountability Board in order to make independent expenditures against Governor Scott Walker. Govenor Walker, however, is not eligible for recall until January 2011.

This organization is registered with the Government Accountability Board following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC as a corporation making independent disbursements.
