Jose Antonio Vargas: My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant
Jul 11 2011 - 6:30pm

Jose Antonio Vargas, Former Reporter, The Washington Post; Founder, Define American
In conversation with Phil Bronstein, Editor-at-Large, Hearst Newspapers

“I convinced myself that all would be OK if I lived up to the qualities of a 'citizen': hard work, self-reliance, love of my country.” Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post journalist Vargas just revealed to The New York Times that he immigrated to the United States illegally at the age of 12. Raised and educated in the Bay Area, Vargas won the Pulitzer Prize in 2008 for his breaking news piece on the Virginia Tech shootings. Now 30 and no longer a reporter at the Post, Vargas has founded Define American, to changed the conversation on immigration reform. Fresh on the heels of this game-changing Times article, come hear Vargas speak first at the Club.

Time: 6 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m. program, 7:30 reception
