At Third and Hope Street outside B of A, KCRW's Saul Gonzalez spoke with former Obama White House aide Van Jones (at right), now president and co-founder of an activist group called Rebuild the Dream. We hear more from the Reverend Doctor Ryan Bell, senior pastor at the Hollywood Adventist Church and member of the Pico National Clergy Leadership Council.
