Updated! – Cheryl Dorsey and Van Jones on CSPAN
Echoing Green is set to take over Capitol Hill tomorrow, as President Cheryl Dorsey and 1994 Fellow Van Jones are slated to testify before the House Education and Labor Committee. The hearing, titled Renewing America through National Service and Volunteerism, will “examine the importance of national and community service in meeting critical economic needs across the country.” Cheryl and Van, along with recording artist Usher and several others, will stand as witnesses to the power of civic engagement and the ways community involvement can help reinvigorate America.
