MILL VALLEY—After Hours: Jose Antonio Vargas

December 6, 2019 @ 11:00 am1:00 pm

MILL VALLEY—What is the mental health toll of being undocumented in this nation? Jose Antonio Vargas, a product of the Bay Area and the most well-known undocumented immigrant in the country, presents an evening on immigration and what it means to be American. Author of the best-selling memoir, Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen, Vargas is also a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist (2008, Washington Post), Emmy-nominated filmmaker (White People), and Tony-nominated producer (What the Constitution Means to Me). A leading voice for the human rights of immigrants, he founded the non-profit media and culture organization Define American. Vargas wrote a groundbreaking essay published by the New York Times Magazine in 2011 in which he revealed and chronicled his life in America as an undocumented immigrant, which was subsequently detailed in Documented, an autobiographical documentary feature film that Vargas produced and directed.
