We are all used to seeing Van Jones on CNN, as an important voice for the resistance. 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, 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 doing ground level social change work.

The best part about 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.
