About Me

Mike hopes to see the world turned upside down through local communities banding together for social change, especially churches which have recognized the radical calling to be good news to the poor, to set free the prisoners and oppressed, and to become the social embodiment of the reign of God on earth as it is in heaven. He lives with the blessed memory of his wife, in Durham, NC, and has three adult children living in three different states. He also shares his life with the Mt. Level Missionary Baptist Church in Durham, the faculty and students of Shaw University Divinity School in Raleigh, NC, and the faithful fans of Duke and Baylor Basketball in his neighborhood.

Clean Energy Jobs

Van Jones has risen to leadership in the dual struggle for a cleaner environment and an end to poverty. The founder of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, Jones engaged in the struggle to improve the lives of young blacks in the Bay Area. Over time, he gained a new recognition of the relationship of race, poverty, and the environment, leading him to found another organization called Green for All. An excellent article, "Greening the Ghetto," tells about his ideas, his life, and the influence he is now having on public policy.
