Can't get enough of the RNC drama?

Check out our elections playlist for the latest clips from Van Jones -- live all week in Cleveland (and wish him luck)!!


2016 election talk

Van Jones joined thousands of DFA members for a "DFA Live" call moderated by Charles Chamberlain, Democracy for America's Executive Director. 

Listen in as Van Jones discussed the 2016 election and took live questions. 


A heartbreaking week

Van spent hours on air last week -- reacting to tragedy after tragedy live. His words speak for themselves:

"We need to reach down and find some empathy. If you cried for the brother who bled out next to his fiancé but you didn't cry this morning for those police officers, it is time to do a heart check. If you cried for those police officers but have a hard time taking seriously all these videos coming out with these African-Americans dying, it is time to do a heart check. Because a country -- we are either going to come together or come apart now. There is enough pain on both sides there should be some empathy starting to kick in."

Also, In an exclusive video for Mic, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Common, Chris Rock, Taraji P. Henson, Van Jones and others describe the mundane actions that cost black Americans their lives. Watch below:


Van Jones tears into Jeffrey Lord -- again

Oh wow.

On national TV (and in the year 2016) this conversation happened. Watch Van meticulously take apart the racist troll logic behind the Trump campaign. 


Justice Reform Now

The U.S. is now the NUMBER ONE incarcerator of human beings in the world. 

Van takes on prisons -- and how they hurt our communities -- in this new video by AJ+.

Van points out the difference between people on the outside and people on the inside: "You didn't get caught. They got caught. And they can never get uncaught"


Trumpzilla

Last month, Van Jones did his first Facebook live post. He called it Trumpzilla and it went viral:

MoveOn helped out and turned these ideas into a very shareable post:
