“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,” said Style Weekly editor Jason Roop. “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.”
