Tracking Congress’s Top Staff of Color

On December 14, the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies launched an interactive online tool to track newly-hired top staff by new Members and top staff of color hired by returning Members of the 116th Congress.

The resource features interactive tables, which will allow users to organize the data by political party, state, Member name, the percentage of people of color in the state or congressional district, and other factors. The site also allows users to submit data about newly-hired top staffers.
