PB in the 10th Ward
Alderwoman Sadlowski Garza brought PB to the 10th Ward in 2015. Learn more about the ward, upcoming events, and past cycles below.
The 10th Ward is the furthest southeast ward in Chicago and the largest by area. The ward includes all or part of the Hegewisch, South Deering, East Side, and South Chicago neighborhoods. The ward was once home to steel mills and one of the city’s larger concentration of steel workers. Today, the area still maintains much of its blue collar identity. It is also home to Lake Calumet, the once-busy Port of Chicago, and shares a border with the state of Indiana.
