Business and labor groups don’t often agree on policies affecting the economy or workers. But the need to rebuild America’s crumbling transportation network is a shared interest that brought corporate and labor organizations together when they formed the Americans for Transportation Mobility (ATM) Coalition in 2001.

For nearly seven years, Tobin Communications, Inc. (TCI) managed the public face of the ATM. That effort resulted in a historic win at the end of 2021 when Congress passed, and President Biden signed, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

During the campaign, TCI directed the rebuild of ATM’s website and produced over 50 videos that were used in targeted digital advertising and on social media.

Here are some of the videos that helped put the infrastructure issue squarely at the center of the public dialogue:

‘We are America’ — The Message to Congress

America’s Economy & Future Count on Federal Investment in Modern, Safer & Faster Transportation

Note to Policymakers: We Must Ensure that U.S. Infrastructure is Globally Competitive

Elected Leaders Need to Do More Than Just Talk About Transportation

We crafted dozens of written stories that were promoted via ATM’s e-mail newsletter and through its social media channels. The stories helped spur online traffic to the Coalition’s website and increased grassroots engagement. Some of these stories included:

TCI secured dozens of radio interviews for members of the Coalition. One of those interviews garnered high-level attention on The Howard Stern show:
