"The Center for Progressive Leadership is proud to announce the addition of two new members to CPL's executive team: Tracy Sturdivant and Beth Meyer.
Tracy and Beth have been prominent leaders in the progressive movement for many years. The diversity of their experiences and their commitment to long-term change represents the kind of leadership we are trying to develop every day through our own programs.
They are going to help take CPL and the work we do across the country to a new level.
We hope you'll join in celebrating their new roles with us.
