Rebecca Connie - Experimental Station/ Blackstone Bicycle Works

As a 5th generation Chicagoan, Rebecca has worked with youth and young adults in public schools, marginalized communities, and higher education where she has dedicated her efforts to social justice projects that involved youth-led activism. Rebecca's work centers Black, Latinx, and Native/NDN youth as well as LGBTQIA communities. She strives to use education as a tool for activism and communal solidarity. She loves trees and the quickest way to her heart is to share a jibarito with her.
