Poverty Scorecard
Rating members of congress

Votes Matter.

Votes matter. Each year, our elected officials demonstrate their commitment to economic and racial justice through the votes they cast. Whether it’s on a bill that will have a demonstrable impact on the lives of millions of low-income Americans, or a resolution that expresses support for programs that improve the quality of life of people living in poverty, elected officials can champion economic and racial justice by voting consistently for legislation that makes a real difference.
