The Dream Corps was formed in 2009 out of Oakland, California and is responsible for three popular initiatives: #YesWeCode#cut50, and #GreenForAll as well as the post-election #Love Army. CNN Contributor and “Messy Truth” host Van Jones is the President and Co-Founder and while being a liberal voice of comfort for aimless Americans, the company’s initiatives are largely bi-partisan.

If you’re not familiar with Van Jones, he’s one to know. Like Michael Moore, he predicted a Trump win, and has eye-opening logic such as mass incarceration that influenced election results.

The core values of Dream Corps are solutions, servant leadership, and soul. #Cut50 aims to transform the criminal justice system using practical solutions to cut prison populations by 50 percent over the next 10 years. #YesWeCode works to diversify the tech sector by supporting over 100,000 young women and men in technical training. #GreenforAll sources money into low-income communities to elevate the opportunities for safe Eco systems for all.

Van Jones announced the formation of the #LoveArmy early December 2016 as an alternative to the out pouring of hate motivated crime and decision making. Through teach-ins and revivals, the #lovearmy gathers volunteers and donations to spread the message that love + power fights hate.

Go to Dream Corps‘s website to check out all their initiatives and join the #LoveArmy if you’re ready to pledge to stand with the most vulnerable, listen with empathy and expect to learn, and act our of love, not fear or hate.
