Van Jones & Roc Nation Collaborate for the Nationwide 'We Rise' Tour

Van Jones & Roc Nation Collaborate for the Nationwide 'We Rise' Tour

We’ve grown accustomed to seeing Van Jones on CNN, as an important voice for the resistance, but now you’ll soon have the opportunity to see Jones up close.

Van Jones, in partnership with Roc Nation, is going on a nationwide event tour. On this tour, Van Jones will feature a collection of artists, athletes, thought leaders, and local leaders. During these tour stops, Jones will also be collaborating with those doing frontline work; Jones will visit local community centers, schools, and organizations to engage with those engaging in ground level social change work.

The most admirable part of Jones going on the road it is that 100 percent of proceeds from the tour — which will be promoted by Live Nation — will go to the Dream Corps initiative and other local charities. Van is also the founder and president of the Dream Corps, a nonprofit organization that works to solve America’s toughest problems.

Facebook pre-sale is going on now and will end on Thursday at 10 PM.
