Carl Pope has worked tirelessly in the name of the Sierra Club for thirty years,
running the organization – the largest of its kind in the country –
since 1992. Van Jones has founded several organizations within the last
decade, including The Ella Baker
Center for Human Rights
and Green For All. They both live in
the Bay Area. They both care intensely about saving the environment
though they employ very distinct methods. In this first episode of the
new documentary series, This Brave
Nation
, Pope and Jones discuss the myriad issues and movements that
have informed and inspired their lives and work.

A kind of “living history” project composed of short videotaped
conversations, This Brave Nation brings together the most intelligent,
passionate and creative voices of one generation with the activists,
journalists and artists of the next to dialogue on loves, lives,
politics and history. Each discussion will be produced as both a
five-minute video and a thirty-minute mini-documentary, which will be
collected in a DVD box set. Starting today, June 1, a new video will be
released each Sunday for four weeks leading up to a live event in Los
Angeles on July 13.

Dear reader,

I hope you enjoyed the article you just read. It’s just one of the many deeply reported and boundary-pushing stories we publish every day at The Nation. In a time of continued erosion of our fundamental rights and urgent global struggles for peace, independent journalism is now more vital than ever.

As a Nation reader, you are likely an engaged progressive who is passionate about bold ideas. I know I can count on you to help sustain our mission-driven journalism.

This month, we’re kicking off an ambitious Summer Fundraising Campaign with the goal of raising $15,000. With your support, we can continue to produce the hard-hitting journalism you rely on to cut through the noise of conservative, corporate media. Please, donate today.

A better world is out there—and we need your support to reach it.

Onwards,

Katrina vanden Heuvel
