Subject: BREAKING NEWS: NAACP Releases Senate Scorecards For All 50 States
Today, a coalition of civil rights organizations, led by the NAACP, released its first ever Senate scorecard, which grades every U.S. Senator on their performance defending voting rights in Congress.
Click here to see your senators’ grades.
Launched by the National Urban League, National Action Network, National Coalition of Black Civic Participation, Fighting for Our Vote Initiative, National Council of Negro Women, and the NAACP, the scorecard comes just one week after a minority of U.S. Senators blocked the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.
The Civil Rights Scorecard gives Senators grades ranging from A (pass), I (incomplete), or F (fail), based on their votes on the American Rescue Plan Act, Freedom to Vote Act, John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act as well as their support for eliminating the filibuster.

Along with the digital scorecards, our state conferences in Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Virginia, and Wisconsin will be delivering the report directly to their senators today.
NAACP and coalition partners are urging members in states across the country to join us in demanding action to advance voting rights legislation.
