Yesterday, Oct. 28, the Washington Gladden Social Justice Park officially opened at the corner of Broad Street and Cleveland Avenue in Columbus, Ohio. Motorists Insurance Group is a supporter of the park, and we are proud to align ourselves with the mission of social justice. The Washington Gladden Social Justice Park is the first of its kind in the nation.
“Motorists is committed to making lasting contributions in the communities we serve,” Motorists Chief Executive Officer Dave Kaufman said. “We were not only drawn to the mission of the project, but also to the opportunity to be involved in the beautification of our own neighborhood.”
The park is now open to the public for community members to come together and learn about social justice issues through education programs and special exhibits. “Motorists is invested in changing the landscape of the Discovery District right here in our own backyard, and now this is an opportunity to do the same in our front yard,” Motorists Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer John Kessler said.
