Duration: 23 min 11 sec

Activist Van Jones is tackling two of our biggest problems—urban poverty and environmental peril—with a fresh, dynamic plan. His vision for providing America’s poor with “green jobs instead of jails” touts a Green Revolution that includes everyone.

He speaks truth to power and asks if there is a way that the work that most needs doing could be done by those who most need work.
