Van Jones: We Rise Tour powered by #LoveArmy

August 6, 2017 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.


A Yale-educated attorney, Van is perhaps best known as a commentator on CNN, where he hosts “The Messy Truth, with Van Jones.”
Van is also the founder and president of Dream Corps, a nonprofit organization that works to solve America’s toughest problems. It’s current initiatives - #cut50, #YesWeCode, and Green for All – create innovative solutions to close prison doors and open doors of opportunity.
Van was the 2017 commencement keynote speaker for Morehouse College and has garnered honors from the World Economics Forum, Times “100 Most Influential” List and Fast company.
Van Jones won the 2017 Webby Special Achievement Award for his use of the Internet and social media during the 2016 election, including for his video series “The Messy Truth”.
In October 2017, he will release his third book: Beyond the Messy Truth: How We Came Apart & How We Came Together. Van has also written two New York Times bestsellers: The Green Collar Economy, the definitive book on green jobs, and Rebuild the Dream, a roadmap for progressives.
In 2009, Van worked as the ‘green jobs’ advisor to the Obama White House, where he helped run the interagency process that oversaw $80 billion in green energy recovery spending. He is also cofounder of numerous social justice organizations ColorofChange.org and the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights.
We Rise will bring an array of artists, athletes, thought leaders and local officials to cities across the country this summer. Van Jones, a renowned activist, CNN commentator and two-time New York Times bestselling author will headline the tour.
We Rise focuses on commonalities as opposed to our differences – exploring how to increase dialogue and engagement on both the local and national levels. Attendees have the opportunity to connect, ask questions and participate in various activations during the program.
