Van Jones is the President & Co-Founder of Dream Corps, a collection of initiatives including #cut50, #YesWeCode, Green For All, and #LoveArmy. A Yale-educated attorney, he is a correspondent for CNN, a regular guest on political talk shows, and the author of The Green Collar Economy, the definitive book on green jobs, and Rebuild the Dream, a roadmap for progressives. In 2009, Jones worked as the green jobs advisor to the Obama White House. There, he ran the interagency process that oversaw $80 billion in green energy recovery spending. His newest book, Beyond the Messy Truth: How We Came Apart, How We Come Together, is a passionate manifesto that exposes hypocrisy on both sides of the political divide and points a way out of the tribalism that is tearing America apart.

Signed copies of Beyond The Messy Truth will be available for purchase.
