About Tennessee Alliance for Progress
TAP is a statewide organization with a mission to foster sustainable communities in Tennessee. TAP believes that we need to articulate a hopeful vision for the future based on the idea that we are all in it together.
TAP works to facilitate true political and economic democracy where people should participate in decisions that affect their lives.
TAP advocates for an economy which serves all Tennesseans well and fairly and which protects the environment for generations to come.
TAP's current main policy initiative is creating green jobs as pathways to prosperity.
We work with partner organizations throughout the state as hosts of the Tennessee Green Jobs Network. We are a key organizer of the Green-Collar Jobs Task Force of Nashville/Davidson County and are assisting the formation of initiatives in Knoxville and Memphis. Nashville also has an active Women in Green Jobs Committee.
