Sharon Cromwell

Senior Strategist

Sharon Cromwell (she/hers) is a Senior Strategist at the Grassroots Power Project. With over ten years of experience working with labor unions and advocacy organizations on housing, worker rights, immigration justice and community safety beyond policing, she’s honed her skills as a systems thinker, seasoned strategist and campaigner with an enthusiasm for building teams, launching new programs and campaigns, and translating ideas into action. Before joining GPP, she was the Deputy State Director of the New York Working Families Party where she focused on developing internal party infrastructure and governance, driving strategy, and leading high stakes statewide electoral campaigns. At the party she helped advance WFP’s goal of building a mass-based, multi-racial and multi-generational political party as the electoral arm of social movements in New York. She’s led on local, statewide and federal legislative and corporate campaigns at the Service Employees International Union Local 32BJ, Everytown for Gun Safety, and the NY Taxi Workers Alliance. She is grateful to the labor and party leaders who have informed the discipline, rigor and strategic eye she brings to movement work. Sharon was born in Zimbabwe, raised in union home in Canada and has lived in the U.S. for over a decade. She is an avid traveler and currently resides in Brooklyn with her husband, toddler, and dog.
