Jessyca Dudley will build safe and healthy communities in Chicago. Chicago loses more than 400 people each year to homicides; in recent years that number has jumped to over 700 lives lost—driven by the gun violence facing young people and communities of color in our city. Jessyca will work to: 1) elevate the voices of those who are most impacted by health inequities; 2) validate their experiences as meaningful; and 3) acknowledge their roles as stakeholders and leaders in the fight for change.
