The legendary Prince is hard at work on his effort to Rebuild the Dream. Taking it back to his natural roots by sporting an Afro-centric hairstyle, Prince made his first public appearance on ABC’s The View since announcing his collaboration with Van Jones, former Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, to help mobilize thousands of civic minded people to build strong vibrant communities and to fix our economy from the ground up.
“We couldn’t be more excited about partnering with a legend like Prince,” said Van Jones, Co-founder and President of Rebuild the Dream in an earlier statement. “Our economic system is broken. Rebuild the Dream exists to unite arts and organize into a potent force to support the Dreams of Our Communities. There are few artists who have Prince’s unwavering commitment to a vision of a sustainable, fair economic future.”
“Rebuild the Dream is a platform for bottom-up, people-powered innovations to help fix the economy not just here in the U.S. but globally as well. Using 21st-century digital technology, we advance highly inventive solutions that are designed to protect and expand our communities, while creating pathways to prosperity for those who are locked out of it. Our goal is to put People back to work—and pull our communities back together.”
Prince is officially scheduled to return to the stage in Chicago, at the United Center beginning September 24th to support Rebuild the Dream founded by Van Jones.
