Van Jones Endorses Williamson for Congress CA-33
Civil Rights and The Environment: Priorities to both Jones and Williamson
LOS ANGELES, CA -- Today, Marianne Williamson’s campaign announced the endorsement of Van Jones, an environmental advocate, civil rights activist, and attorney.
"In a world of cynical, transactional politics, Marianne Williamson stands out as a transformational leader," said Jones. "I support Marianne Williamson for Congress because her years of public compassion and courage uniquely qualify her to speak deep truths and move the needle -- even in the heart of Washington, DC. Her strength, courage and wisdom will bring the best out in other leaders. I support her passion for getting money out of politics so we can repair our democracy. I applaud her for challenging the status quo on such important issues as civil liberties, expanding corporate influence, domestic surveillance and high mass incarceration rates. But mainly I admire her for the impact her work and words have already had on so many people who are living better lives because of the insights her writing has elevated."
“I am grateful for the endorsement of Van Jones, who has passionately committed himself to the environment, jobs and civil rights for decades.” Williamson said. “He has been a steward of green jobs and a champion for rebuilding the American middle class.”
