Civil Rights Scorecard

#CivilRightsScorecard

The Senate has a job to do

After a year of assaults on American voting rights, the next steps are clear: end the filibuster and enact federal voting rights legislation that protects voters, no matter what state they live in.

A coalition of civil rights organizations has evaluated key votes of each U.S. senator to grade their efforts to protect our democracy. Senators' actions on the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, the For the People Act, and efforts to eliminate the filibuster have direct impact on voters for the 2022 midterms and beyond.

We continue to do our job. We vote, we mobilize, and we amplify our needs. Now the Senate must do theirs.

Hold Congress Accountable
