Van Jones has made it his life’s work to change our justice system by way of prison reform. He is breaking down walls and willing to work with the most unlikely people to help ensure that change does happen. He stopped by Sway In The Morning to talk about potentially crossing party lines to work Donald Trump. And mentoring celebrities like Kim Kardashian who is dedicating her time to this effort as well.
I appreciate all of the efforts that are happening with Prison Reform. I recently met a gentleman, Tuan Nguyen, who is putting his efforts into prison reform in Texas and he has a powerful story. I hope that we can coordinate efforts to make a change. This movement has been a real eyeopener for me. It’s so easy to get caught up in our daily grind when in reality we have so many people who are suffering and who are trapped in systems that make it almost humanly impossible to succeed. Thank God for those with great influence who use their voices to bring about awareness. I believe we can make a systematic change.
