For the 50th anniversary of the Selma march, we analyzed Congressional floor records, official websites and Twitter feeds to produce a Civil Rights intensity league table - a combination of how liberal or conservative Members of Congress are on Civil Rights, and how vocal they are on the subject.

Those at the top of the list are the biggest champions of Civil Rights; all Members of Congress are ranked 1 through 518 (there are 17 Members of Congress for whom we couldn’t find reliable data). Use Command+F (or CTRL+F) to look up a specific name.
