Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights Issues Voting Record

The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights today released vote ratings for every member of the Congress for the First Session of the 113th Congress. The Voting Record, which has been published for every Congress since 1969, reflects positions taken by every senator and representative on the legislative priorities of The Leadership Conference and its more than 200 coalition members.

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.
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights is a coalition charged by its diverse membership of more than 200 national organizations to promote and protect the rights of all persons in the United States. The Leadership Conference works toward an America as good as its ideals.

The Leadership Conference Education Fund builds public will for federal policies that promote and protect the civil and human rights of all persons in the United States. The Education Fund's campaigns empower and mobilize advocates around the country to push for progressive change in the United States.
