Jose Antonio Vargas will screen and discuss his new film DOCUMENTED, which chronicles his experiences as an undocumented American. Jose's 2011 article for The New York Times Magazine "outing" himself as undocumented, his 2012 TIME magazine cover story on America's undocumented population, and his media and cultural campaign DEFINE AMERICAN have helped shift the conversation about immigration and citizenship and made Jose the highest profile undocumented American in the country.

Following the screening Jose will participate in a panel discussion with MARISOL CONDE HERNANDEZ (Co-Founder of the NJ DREAM Act Coalition and the Rutgers-Newark Law student) and GIANCARLO TELLO (Campaign Chair for NJ Unity Tuition Equity for DREAMers Campaign and Rutgers-Newark FASN student).

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
