About Tennessee Alliance for Progress
TAP is a statewide organization with a mission to build a prosperous, sustainable economy that benefits all Tennesseans. TAP believes that we need to articulate a hopeful vision for the future based on our motto "We are all in this 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 came up with the name for the Mayor's home weatherization program, Nashville Energy Works (NEW) and served on the NEW Advisory Board. We are a key NEW outreach partner. TAP's Green is Alive in District 5 Project located in a majority-black, low to moderate income East Nashville neighborhood is designed to encourage people to weatherize their homes in order to save money on their utility bills, increase the value their homes, lower Nashville's carbon footprint and create green jobs.
