Van Jones is a social entrepreneur, CNN political contributor, and the host of the "Van Jones Show" and the "Redemption Project." He appears regularly across the network’s programming and political coverage. He is a popular guest on TV programs like "The Daily Show" and "Real Time with Bill Maher." He also made special appearances on "House of Cards" and Ava Duvernay’s documentary "The 13th."
Jones founded the nonprofit Dream Corps, a justice incubator that houses the following initiatives: #cut50, #YesWeCode, #GreenForAll, and #LoveArmy, all with the overarching goal to create innovative solutions that "close prison doors and open doors of opportunity." He has cofounded other social enterprises, including the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, ColorOfChange.org, GreenForAll.org, and Rebuild The Dream.
A Yale-educated attorney, Van has written three New York Times Bestsellers: "The Green Collar Economy," the definitive book on green jobs; "Rebuild the Dream," a roadmap for progressives; and most recently, "Beyond the Messy Truth: How We Came apart, How We Come Together."
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. He was the main advocate for the Green Jobs Act. Signed into law by George W. Bush in 2007, the Green Jobs Act was the first piece of federal legislation to codify the term “green jobs.” During the Obama Administration, the legislation has resulted in $500 million in national funding for green jobs training.
Jones has been honored with numerous awards and spotlighted on several lists of high achievers, including: the World Economic Forum’s “Young Global Leader” designation; Rolling Stone’s 2012 “12 Leaders Who Get Things Done”; TIME’s 2009 “100 Most Influential People in The World”; and the Root's 2014 "The Root 100." In 2017, Van Jones signed a management deal with Roc Nation, becoming the first political commentator & activist in their family.
