Report Cards for Representatives

621There’s an amazing website out there you may not know about. That website is http://darfurscores.org/ – sponsored by the Genocide Intervention Network.

GI-NET has given every house and senate representative a “Darfur score” – a rating of his or her support of Darfur legislation and other anti-genocide measures. A plus (+) added to a letter grade means that the representative has actually traveled to Darfur.

All you have to do is type in your zip code, and, in seconds, you will receive a “report card” for your elected legislators.

If your representatives display high scores, we encourage you to contact them to express your appreciation and urge them to continue their support. If your representatives display poor scores, we encourage you to contact them to express your concern and urge them to lend their support.

Congrats to my senate representatives Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein – who received scores of A+ and A, respectively.

Look up the Darfur score for your Representative.
