Do you know how YOUR members of Congress voted in the past year?

The NAACP has just released its Congressional Report Card for the first session of the 111th Congress, which illustrates how your Senators and Representatives voted on key civil rights, economic justice, health care and criminal justice issues - to name just a few.

Click here to see how your representatives voted on crucial civil rights issues and hold them accountable.

According to the latest report card, 59% of Senators and 47% of House Members received an "A" by the NAACP, a significant step up from last year. We applaud the members who continue to uphold the importance of basic civil rights for all Americans, as demonstrated by the passage of the Hate Crimes Prevention Act, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).

However, there are many that have yet to show their commitment to fundamental civil and human rights. In fact, 29% of Senators and 34% of House Members received the failing grade of "F" on the report card.

Is your representative one of them?

Be sure to download the NAACP's Legislative Report Card to find out how effectively your members of House and Senate are advocating for the civil rights of all Americans. Together, we can hold them accountable for their voting practices and the advancement of good public policy.
