President-elect Joe Biden named hundreds of people to dozens of Agency Review Teams Tuesday to prepare for his incoming administration to begin operations on January 20. The announcement of the so-called ARTs comes despite obstruction by the lame duck Trump administration. Members of the teams come from liberal advocacy groups and Democratic campaigns, with many having served in the Obama administration. Of the hundreds of ART members, “more than half are women, and approximately 40 percent represent communities historically underrepresented in the federal government, including people of color, people who identify as LGBTQ+, and people with disabilities,” according to the Biden-Harris Transition team.
