Van Jones is a globally-recognized pioneer in human rights and the clean energy economy and one of the country's leading champions of smart solutions to create pathways out of the current economic and evironmental crises.
Jones is president and co-founder of Rebuild the Dream, a platform for bottom-up, people-powered innovations to help fix the U.S. economy.
A Yale-educated attorney, Jones has written two New York Times Best Sellers: The Green Collar Economy, the definitive book on green jobs, and Rebuild the Dream, a roadmap for progressives in 2012 and beyond. Van is currently a CNN Contributor. In 2009, Van worked as the green jobs advisor to the Obama White House. There, he helped run the inter-agency process that oversaw $80 billion in green energy recovery spending.
Jones is the founder of Green For All, a national organization working to get green jobs to disadvantaged communities. He was the main advocate for the Green Jobs Act, signed into law by George W. Bush in 2007. The Act was the first piece of federal legislation to codify the term "green jobs." Under the Obama administration, it has resulted in $500 million for green job training nationally.
While best known as a pioneer in the environmintal movement, Van has been hard at work in social justice for nearly two decades. He is the co-founder of two social justice organizations: the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights and Color of Change.
