Today's political climate has left many feeling discouraged.
But Van Jones' rousing speech at Netroots Nation last week was a breath of fresh air. I also loved Van's insightful, hopeful piece in the New York Times regarding Shirley Sherrod's resignation.
In case you are in need of some inspiration, I want to share with you some uplifting words from our co-founder.

People are always asking me about Van and how he is doing.
I want you to know that heis doing really well and getting excited about teaching at Princeton University this fall.
We at Green For All are proud that Van continues to promote a positive politics of love and hope, as we continue to work for the changes our country both needs and deserves.
