Wainwright as a springboard for conversation, student leaders from across the country convened to discuss the legacy of Gideon, the future of work on behalf of low income individuals and the critical role that students can play in delivering on Gideon’s promise of a more just society. Jo-Ann Wallace was the featured speaker.
