Jessica Tansey

“I want to get all of us thinking about how to bring communities together to support each other during rough times.” 

How one Lincoln Park teen, Jessica Tansey, is tackling two problems with one solution in this difficult time. In the Chicago Tribune article below, read about Jessica’s idea coming to fruition for her community in need. Anyone can make a difference, and the creative contributions of Chicago teens are really inspiring. This #RepairTheWorldWedneday Springboard wants to highlight and thank Jessica for her passion, ingenuity, and commitment to those in need.
