Kennedy (she/her) is a native of Chicago’s South Side who is passionate about the intersection of community engagement, public green space, and the transformative power of art. She has experienced the negative impacts of inequitable urban planning, having to commute over an hour and a half for school; this drives her work as a planner. Kennedy believes in the importance of cultivating strong relationships with residents and creating environments that go beyond functionality to foster a sense of belonging in communities.
