  • American Conservative Union
  • Center for Constitutional Rights
  • Death Penalty Information Center
  • Human Rights Watch
  • National Academy of Sciences
  • National Governors Association
  • Sierra Club
  • United States Sentencing Commission

Users may view information by topic or by agency.

Representative topics include:

  • civil liberties
  • criminal justice

  • immigration
  • national security
  • transparency

Agencies include:

  • Antitrust Division
  • Drug Enforcement Administration
