CNN acquires Vargas



Pulitzer Prize

Vargas was sent to America,
from the Philippines,
as a child by his mother
so he cold have a good life.







  On March 10th see the
 west coast university premiere
     of a powerful personal story,
and meet

 Jose Antonio Vargas

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist,
filmmaker, and founder of

Define American, a campaign that
seeks to elevate the conversation
around misunderstood people.

The School of Journalism and
Mass Communication will honor
him with the 2014
William Randolph Hearst
Foundation Award.

His latest documentary,
acquired by CNN Films, is "Documented,"
a film about immigration co-directed by Ann Lupo.
It was produced in honor of the
11 million undocumented people in America.


 Vargas "outed" himself as undocumented in his
2011 New York Times Magazine essay
 "My Life as an
Undocumented Immigrant." 

He wants to spend the day talking with SJSU
journalism students and the campus community.

Vargas will offer the first west coast
university screening of his new,
documentary that will debut
nationally on CNN later this year.


Bay Area and campus community
groups and individuals are invited
to join us for an opportunity to interact
with Vargas,
discuss his documentary,
share personal stories,
and explore immigration issues
in-depth as
President Obama
and Congress work on
national immigration reform.

This event is co-sponsored by the
Office of Human Relations,
Human Relations Commission.
