Rebecca Raines Cook

Manager of Outreach and Public Engagement

Rebecca joined the CNT team in March of 2016 to spread the message of RainReady and other urban sustainability issues, and manages all of CNT's community outreach. Rebecca also coordinates the Urban Sustainability Tech Challenge, connecting CNT's data science skills to local issues. Holiding a Master’s in Urban Planning and Policy from the University of Illinois at Chicago, she has long been concerned with how the physical space affects the vibrancy of a community. When Rebecca is not out asking strangers, “Are you RainReady?”, she is an active member of the civil rights and church community.
