Web Special: Van Jones on the Green Collar Economy
Van Jones has been a critical bridge between the environmental and social justice worlds through his call for green collar jobs. Barack Obama made creating those jobs a key campaign promise. In her November 12 interview, Sarah van Gelder asked Van about prospects for change with the new Obama administration.
Community organizer and youth advocate Van Jones says the jobs we need to cut climate-warming pollution can also put marginalized youth on solid career tracks: "We have a chance to connect the people who most need work with the work that most needs to be done." This is the starting place for a green collar economy.
