Van Jones began his career as an activist in the Bay Area pushing for criminal justice reform. He then moved to focus more on the environment, promoting green jobs as a solution for including disenfranchised communities in the economy while addressing environmental problems. His work in the area, through the nonprofit organization he founded Green for All and his book The Green Collar Economy, earned him a spot as Special Advisor on Green Jobs in the Obama Administration. After a short tenure in Washington, Jones returned to activism and became increasingly involved in mainstream media as a political commentator for CNN, gaining recognition for his coverage of the 2016 election. Since the election he has worked to promote civility and compassion in American politics and continues to run DreamCorps, his organization to incubate social change.
