Members of Congress were graded on 13 House and 19 Senate votes taken through December 2013 addressing important civil rights protections, as well as jobs, the budget, education, immigration reform, judicial and executive branch nominations, violence against women, and more.
The publication of the Voting Record is accompanied by the 2014 edition of the Civil Rights Monitor, a review of the year’s civil and human rights issues published by The Leadership Conference’s sister organization, The Leadership Conference Education Fund. This edition, which focuses heavily on the Supreme Court, brings substantive commentary on voting rights, equal opportunity in college admissions, immigration reform, judicial and executive nominations, education, financial reform, and much more.
