Impact Makers takes part in “Justice Makers in Our Community”

Impact Makers took part in a Henrico County high school forum, “Justice Makers in Our Community.” Steve Wilson, President of Impact Makers, was one of four guest speakers at a forum held January 31, 2007, at Hermitage High School’s Center for the  Humanities in Richmond, Virginia. More than 120 students enrolled at the Henrico County Specialty Center attended the forum, titled “Justice Makers in our Community.” Wilson spoke about Impact Makers, his career and role at the company, and how the sharing of “wealth creation” can play a part in defining justice in the community.

Clare Sisisky, director of the Center for the Humanities at Hermitage High School, stands with Steve Wilson, President of Impact Makers, who was one of four forum presenters held at the school from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, January 31, 2007.

The forum was organized by Sisisky to help students understand that the definition of justice takes on many forms and that many members of the community are fighting for justice in unique ways. The forum was developed by the Center through a grant from CapitalOne. The year-long grant will help the Center to implement a program for students focused on the concept of justice. One goal of the program is to encourage students to educate others about the need for a continued fight for justice in our society and around the world.
