Van Jones Offers Game Plan to ‘Rebuild the Dream’

Van Jones Offers Game Plan to ‘Rebuild the Dream’

Van Jones, a former Obama White House adviser on green jobs and an award-winning human rights activist, maps out how to turn Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s and the American Dream into reality in his new book Rebuild the Dream.

The book is due out April 4, the anniversary of King’s assassination in Memphis in 1968, but you can click here to pre-order.

In Rebuild the Dream, Jones explains seven crucial missteps by the White House and by social change movements since 2008 and analyzes the rise of the tea party and occupy movements. He lays out a strategic game plan for the next chapter—turning anger into action, protest into power and suffering into solutions. It is a road map to re-energizing the progressive movement.

Jones is the author of the best-selling The Green Collar Economy and currently is a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress (CAP) focusing on “green-collar jobs” and how cities are implementing job-creating climate solutions.
