Van Jones, in addition to being the founder of Green For All, is widely respected as one of the country’s most important thought-leaders, human rights champions, and environmental heroes. That’s why we couldn’t be more thrilled to be sponsoring a conversation between Van and award-winning journalist Farai Chideya as part of The Forum: Conversations at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. What: An Evening with Van Jones When: Thursday, June 21 at 7 p.m. Where: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts 701 Mission Street San Francisco, CA 94103 In the years since Van founded Green For All, the green economy has taken off. There are now 3.1 million Americans employed in it, and we’ve worked hard to make sure our country’s most vulnerable and disenfranchised citizens are among them. But we still have work to do. Attacks on the green economy from big polluters are growing fiercer with each passing day. Meanwhile, America’s middle class is shrinking and too many of us are still jobless and struggling to get by. Our country is at a crossroads, and it’s more important than ever to engage in dialogue about the challenges we face. Van’s new organization, Rebuild the Dream, is dedicated to making America’s economy work for 100 percent of Americans, not just the top 1 percent. We can’t wait to hear what he has to say about his vision for America’s future. We hope you’ll join us.
