"Van Jones demonstrates conclusively that the best solutions for the survivability of our planet are also the best solutions for everyday Americans." - Al Gore

NY Times columnist Thomas Friedman quotes Van Jones, saying, "It's time to stop borrowing and start building. America's number one resource is not oil or mortgages. Our number one resource is our people. Let's put people back to work  retrofitting and repowering America." (9/28/08)

Our country is facing serious times. On the heels of sky-high fuel prices this summer, a massive financial crisis has sent the economy into a tailspin this fall. Van will address:

   * How can the next U.S. president create millions of new green jobs?
   * How can we lower energy prices without drilling our shorelines and burning up our planet?
   * How can the government help create energy independence  at practically zero cost to the tax payer?
   * What is eco-apartheid? What is eco-equity?

Van Jones is the founder and president of Green For All, a national advocacy organization based in Oakland, California. Green For All is committed to building an inclusive, green economy - strong enough to lift millions of people out of poverty. Van is a tireless advocate, championing green-collar jobs and opportunities for disadvantaged people. He is committed to creating green pathways out of poverty, while greatly expanding the coalition fighting global warming. Vans advocacy for the toughest urban constituencies and causes has earned him many honors. These include: the 1998 Reebok International Human Rights Award; the International Ashoka Fellowship; selection as a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader; the Rockefeller Foundation Next Generation Leadership Fellowship; Elle Magazine Green Award 2008; George Lucas Foundations Daring Dozen 2008; Hunt Prime Mover Award 2008; Campaign for Americas Future Paul Wellstone Award 2008; and Global Green USA Community Environmental Leadership Award. Van also co-founded both the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights and Color of Change.
