In honor of the new year, the CCL Stats tool page now includes additional statistics for CCL volunteers, including all field report actions (lobby meetings, media pieces, outreach events, and contact with members of Congress) displayed as toggle options for the past year, the current year-to-date and the past 365 days.
- Filters. There are now two types of filters available for group's file pages. To access them go to your group's file page and select:
