"When progress is usually messier as it's happening than when it's remembered, the ability of The First Step to engage with the moment that it's in is invaluable." -Stephen Saito, Moveable Fest

In a divided America, Van Jones controversially works across party lines on landmark criminal justice reform and a more humane response to the addiction crisis. Attempting to be a bridge builder in a time of extreme polarization takes him deep into the inner workings of a divisive administration, internal debates within both parties, and the lives of frontline activists fighting for their communities.
