On May 6th, a small group of North Chicago partners and stakeholders were able to attend a COVID-safe groundbreaking event. We were grateful to be able to celebrate such a powerful project and to elevate the voices of our very own NMSA students who have been integral partners in the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) throughout this project. While we know we have lots of hard work ahead, we were excited to take the time to celebrate this project with the North Chicago community.
