Congratulations To Oakland’s And CNN’s Van Jones On Jeff Bezos’ $100 Million Investment
Congratulations To Oakland’s And CNN’s Van Jones On Jeff Bezos’ $100 Million Investment 23 hours ago, Van Jones, the CEO of of REFORM Alliance, received the news that Amazon Founder and now former CEO Jeff Bezos plans to invest $100 million in Mr. Jones philanthropic plans. Van was once an Oakland resident, and I met him and interviewed him when he released the book The Green Collar Economy, which become a New York Times-best-seller. The book gained him a prime position as "Green Collar Jobs Czar" for President Obama. Van took that platform and parlayed it to a position as a CNN Contributor. There, Jones used his platform to carve out a voice for those who are voice-less, and one who worked to talk to the other side of the aisle. With his award from Bezos, Jones remarked that he "lost the ability to speak". One thing the investment does is give Van a giant voice to use via his investments. I can't wait see what he does next. Stay tuned. Read more
