Thad Williamson, associate professor of leadership studies and philosophy, politics, economics and law, and co-author Melody Barnes write "A new compact for the Fourth of July" in The Hill. Williamson and Barnes argue for a community wealth building approach to democratic government.

Williamson served as the first director of the City of Richmond's Office of Community Wealth Building. At the Jepson School, he teaches courses such as Justice and Civil Society and Leadership, Social Movements, and Social Change.
