Father Tracy Advocacy Center names new executive director  

Beatriz LeBron has been named executive director of the Father Tracy Advocacy Center.  


LeBron brings more than 20 years of experience, with a focus on social justice in areas of education, health and racial equity, language access and economic empowerment. 

LeBron succeeds Ciara McGillivray who has been serving as interim executive director since September. McGillivray will now resume her role as director of operations.  

The organization’s board of directors issued the following statement.  

“We are excited to embark on the next chapter of the FTAC with LeBron leading the way. The board is confident that LeBron’s leadership will continue the legacy of the late Father Laurence Tracy and support the growth of the FTAC, enabling us to continue providing services and resources to individuals in an area of the community that is often under-represented and lacking strong advocacy.” 

FTAC Board members partnered with HR Works in collaboration with several community members during the executive search process.  

The Father Tracy Advocacy Center, located on North Clinton Avenue, serves a diverse population, in part by providing free bagged lunches and water to the homeless and transient population in the area, maintaining a clothing bank and utilizing the strength of existing services to meet the local population needs.
