Van Jones giving a lecture in Portland

On January 26, 2011 Van Jones spoke [about] issues that resonated with students from the University campus and attracted student groups such as the Climate Justice League and the Coalition Against Environmental Racism (CAER). As a member of CAER.

“It’s very exciting to have a guest of his stature to address such important topics. He is the perfect speaker for the Oregon Humanities Center’s mandate to bring discussions on topics of real relevance to the whole campus and surrounding community,” says OHC director Barbara Altmann.
