In a city that sometimes seems obsessed with trading business cards and sidling up to the right crowd, or organizing new events for more trading and sidling, the talking can overshadow the action. On the following pages you’ll find the people who fall into the action column. Our annual search for the young men and women who seek to make change and serve the community has led us to a diverse new class of Style Weekly’s Top 40 Under 40. Some of them are used to making headlines, while others’ efforts are quietly rendered. But they all offer stories that inspire — and perhaps serve as a call to action. — Jason Roop

Top 40 Awards Celebration

We’re holding an awards celebration in honor of the men and women on the following pages and the contributions they make to the community — and you’re invited. The event includes a cocktail reception at 5:30 p.m. followed by a seated dinner at the Hilton Richmond Hotel and Spa at Short Pump. Information and tickets can be found here.
