The immediate past president of nonpartisan thinktank Demos and an NBC News political analyst, McGhee has testified before Congress, drafted legislation, and developed racial justice strategies for organizations and campaigns that won changes to improve the lives of millions. She is currently the chair of the board of Color of Change.
