Despite his achievements, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas could not escape the shadows of his true “identity”- he was an undocumented immigrant- and it affected various parts of his life.  In 2011, he exposed his story in his groundbreaking essay, “My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant,” for the New York Times Magazine, stunning the media and political circles and attracting world-wide coverage.

Vargas is co-founder and director of Define American (www.defineamerican.com), a non-profit organization that seeks to elevate the conversation around immigration. He joins us to help us create a positive dialogue that explores issues with the current U.S. immigration system. This event promotes exploration of the current political, social, and cultural climate of the U.S. particularly around the immigration debate.
