Van JonesADEA aims to bring together experts from inside and outside of academic dentistry at each Annual Session & Exhibition. This year, Monday’s Political Spotlight will feature Van Jones, co-host of Crossfire on CNN, as the featured speaker.

In addition to his duties at CNN, Mr. Jones is the President and co-founder of Rebuild the Dream, a platform for bottom-up, people-powered innovations to help fix the U.S. economy. A Yale-educated attorney, he has written two New York Times best sellers: The Green Collar Economy, the definitive book on green jobs, and Rebuild the Dream, a roadmap for progressives in 2012 and beyond. In 2009, Mr. Jones worked as the green jobs advisor to the Obama administration. There, he helped run the interagency process that oversaw $80 billion in green energy recovery spending. While best known as a pioneer in the environmental movement, Mr. Jones has been hard at work in social justice for nearly two decades, fashioning solutions to some of urban America's toughest problems.
