Marisabel will be only one of two openly LGBTQ women in the Wisconsin State Assembly
Born and raised in Milwaukee’s Southside, Marisabel Cabrera is an immigration attorney who fights to keep families together and assist people in finding safety in the United States. Growing up, Marisabel’s family struggled to get by — often relying on the neighborhood church or local food bank for assistance. She is now a local entrepreneur and Vice Chair of the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission where she works to strike a balance between providing the departments with the training and resources they need to keep our community safe while ensuring that transparency and accountability are not forgotten. She is challenging Rep. Josh Zepnick who was stripped of all of his committee assignments in late 2017 after he was accused of unwanted sexual advances.
“I’m honored to have the endorsement of the Victory Fund, and I look forward to standing up for our progressive values together by fighting for human rights for people of color, immigrants, women and LGBT individuals, healthcare for all, increased wages, and protecting our public schools and environment,” said Marisabel Cabrera. “We need leaders in Madison who understand what it’s like to fight for everything they have. I will bring new bold leadership and most importantly deliver results for our community.”
