The proud son of a union teacher and union auto worker, Mandela has fought for working families as a state representative, and today he is fighting for progressive change as Wisconsin's lieutenant governor. Throughout his career, Mandela has been on the front lines pushing progressive policies, and he's championed criminal justice reform, racial justice, workers' rights, and affordable health care.
