Chris Rudd is a designer, community organizer and youth worker with a passion for social justice. He’s worked with youth on the south and west sides of Chicago, challenging them to engage with their communities through activism and technology. Chris has helped youth from Chicago to the Bay Area design 8 civic apps. As the director of the Juvenile Justice Council (JJC) at Mikva Challenge, Chris worked with 25 diverse young leaders from Cook County to develop an app called Expunge.io, which connects youth with pro bono lawyers to complete the expungement process.

As a Civic Innovation Fellow at the Stanford Institute of Design (d.school) Chris spent a year immersed in graduate courses learning, applying and honing his skills in the Human Centered Design methodology. During the fellowship, he designed a program, Youth Tech Design, for opportunity and "at-risk" youth that can further bridge the gap between young people and the tech sector and allow them to create solutions to their self-identified issues.
