Rebuilding the American Dream for the 99%

Wednesday Jan 25, 2012 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM This is a past program

Former White House adviser Van Jones will discuss his new solution-oriented movement to rebuild America for the 99% who find the American dream increasingly unattainable. One of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World,” Jones will present his 10-point plan to fix the economy, create jobs, and restore America’s democracy. Jones, who is the author of the New York Times best-seller The Green Collar Economy, will also address how the Occupy Wall Street movement and related protests will affect the 2012 elections.
