Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, who has been called “the most famous undocumented immigrant in America,” tackles one of the defining issues of our time. He takes Town Hall’s stage to share his explosive and deeply personal memoir Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen. His tale focuses not on the politics of immigration, but on the sense of homelessness, the unsettled and unmoored psychological state that undocumented immigrants like Vargas find themselves in. He recounts his experiences passing as an American and being forced to lie about his identity and his origins. Join Vargas for a call to action and a meditation on what it means to not have a home.
