Defining "American" and the Art of Activism

Activist Dolores Huerta, recipient of the 2012 Presidential Medal of Freedom, and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, founder of the nonprofit media and culture organization Define American and this country’s most famous undocumented immigrant, have both dedicated their life work to the causes of human rights, citizenship, and equality. In this conversation, they explore their advocacy for millions of underrepresented people, as they reflect on scenes from their critically acclaimed documentaries Dolores and Documented. Moderated by award-winning Atlantic writer and journalist James Fallows.
