Jose Antonio Vargas is making waves as a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Emmy-nominated filmmaker, and human rights activist. Born in the Philippines, Vargas moved to the US at the age of 12 and revealed his status as an undocumented immigrant in The New York Times Magazine in 2011. That experience and essay is the foundation of his new book, Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen. In addition, Vargas somehow has time to be the founder and CEO of Define America, the nation’s leading non-profit media organization that fights anti-immigrant hate through storytelling.
