Tracey was named 2014 Women’s Media Center Progressive Women’s Voices Fellow in September 2014.

In May 2011 Tracey founded the national youth service-learning program The 9/12 Generation Project and acted as Director until the fall of 2013. During that time she also served as a fundraising consultant for a variety of non-profit organizations.
