Following a welcome from San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, former White House aide and Rebuild the Dream founder Van Jones kicked things off with an exhilarating keynote address. He joined Greenlining's call to protect the revenues from California's new cap-and-trade program, which are supposed to be used to reduce carbon emissions, with a major portion going to low-income, highly polluted communities. Jones called Gov. Brown's proposal to borrow that money for the state general fund "a terrible blemish on his record." In his usual pull-no-punches style, Jones added, ""You can't steal from poor people and the planet and get away with it in California."
