Tracy Sturdivant is president of The League, an organizing collective that grew out of the Make it Work Campaign, which she also co-founded. Sturdivant is a veteran organizer for left-of-center causes and a self-professed “one woman coalition.”  Sturdivant has trained women to run for elected office and work in philanthropy.  Both The League and the Make It Work Campaign are projects of the New Venture Fund, a liberal fiscal sponsorship and grantmaking clearinghouse managed by the Arabella Advisors consulting firm.
She previously focused on getting women, minorities youth focused on politics while working in executive positions and as a member of the board of directors for liberal nonprofits such as People for the American Way, the White House Project, and Public Campaign. 
In January 2018, she became the first president of The League, based in New York. The League describes itself as a “social impact collective.” The organization focuses on using culture to motivate people on liberal political issues. 
Make It Work
Sturdivant co-founded Make It Work in June 2014, which was intended to be a three-year campaign to promote issues such as government-funded child care and government-mandated paid family leave for the 2016 election.  She founded the Make It Work organization along with Vivien Labaton. 
In this role, Sturdivant claimed in 2014 that voter ID laws are harmful to ethnic minority women.  Sturdivant likewise advocated for adopting the labor union-demanded federal minimum wage of $15 per hour. 
After the 2016 election ended, Make It Work continued and gave Sturdivant a platform to be critical of President Donald Trump’s administration, asserting his policies were hostile to women in the workplace, particularly black and Hispanic women. 
The Make It Work campaign continued through December 2017. 
While leading State Voices, a liberal advocacy group for state policies, she raised millions for state and local liberal organizations. 
From November 2009 to October 2010, she was the vice president for external affairs at the Center for Progressive Leadership. 
She was the Michigan program director for Publicus LLC from August 2007 to December 2008. 
Sturdivant worked as the program manager for the National Coalition of Black Civic Participation from January 2003 to January 2004. And, she was the national field organizer from January 2001 to January 2003 for Public Campaign.
