In late January we launched our new SustainUS structure of self-managed teams. Since then, the organization has been on fire. We currently have advocacy teams working on trade, climate, money in politics, and cities. We also recently sent delegations to the UN Commissions on Social Development and the Status of Women, lobbied the White House, and were awarded a $10,000 grant for an extended campaign strategy retreat.
We’re recruiting new members for SustainUS to keep up our momentum. Check out the upcoming opportunities below to get engaged! The easiest way to plug-in is to join our SustainUS Community Call on Tuesday March 29 at 8:30 pm ET.

Updates from the SustainUS Teams
Coordinating Body Update: How our new org structure works
In our new structure, any SustainUS member can propose an autonomous self-managed team as long as its work fits within our vision and mission. Each team holds regular meetings via Hangouts and communicates between calls using Slack (see the screenshot). You can read more about our structure in my post.
