One of the most inspiring and courageous stories about Tracy revolves around the campaign she started to fight for the freedom of Jimmy Dennis, a man who was wrongfully convicted of murder and robbery and ended up on death row. After being convicted in 1992, Jimmy spent 25 years in prison until he was finally exonerated.

The Skills Tracy picked up along the way while working on the campaign for Jimmy are what enabled her to start a career as a publicist.
