Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) is known for more than just having a well-thought-out plan for everything; she’s also gained a reputation for meeting Black women at their own tables, allowing them to be her teachers, and listening and evolving as need be.
It makes sense then that Warren scored an A- on the 2020 Racial Justice Presidential Candidate Scorecard, the highest of any candidate in the race. Former Vice President Joe Biden, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), Andrew Yang, are all at the bottom with President Donald Trump with Fs.
The Center for Urban and Racial Equity created the scorecard to center racial justice and to ensure that the concerns of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities are not sidelined. The Racial Justice Presidential Candidate Scorecard “summarizes the presidential candidates’ policy proposals through a racial equity lens across key areas including criminal justice reform, education, health care, voting rights, reparations, environmental justice, immigration, indigenous rights, and policies to close the racial wealth gap,” the center’s website says.
The scores are as follows:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren: A-
Sen. Bernie Sanders: B+
South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg: B+
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn): C
Tom Steyer: D
Former Vice President Joe Biden: F
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii): F
Andrew Yang: F
Donald Trump: F
