Join The Transition Advocacy Project's Founding Local Leaders

Sustainable Strategies DC (S2) has launched a project to track and shape the federal government transition to a Biden/Harris Administration and 117th Congress in support of community revitalization, resilience, and recovery. This S2 “Transition Advocacy Project” will:

  • Receive the tools you need to raise up these key TAP issues, including sample emails and letters to your Members of Congress, talking points for communicating with federal officials, media/social media kits, and other instructions for action. 

  • Engage in periodic organizing calls among TAP Coalition leaders and support staff to report on progress, take advantage of emerging opportunities, and plan key actions for the effort.
