H4PJ Brings Undocumented American, Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist, Immigration Rights Activist Jose Antonio Vargas to Dallas

Immigration Reform and Humanitarian Crisis at the Forefront of Events Designed to Increase Education, Dialogue, Compassion

To kick off its 10th year advocating for peace and justice, Hope for Peace & Justice welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, immigration rights activist, and undocumented American Jose Antonio Vargas August 1-3 for a weekend of events—called ImagiNATION: Immigration—designed to increase education about and create dialogue around the current state of immigration in the United States. An important subtext of the event is the plight of the refugee children who will be arriving in Dallas and the surrounding public discourse.

Vagas, who is openly gay and outed himself as an undocumented immigrant in the New York Times Magazine in 2011, is the director of the critically acclaimed 2013 documentary DOCUMENTED, a biographical film that also explores themes of identity and unauthorized immigration through his own personal journey. Recently aired on CNN, DOCUMENTED chronicles Vargas’s journey to America from the Philippines as a child, his journey through America as an immigration reform activist/provocateur, and his journey inward as he re-connects with his mother, whom he hasn't seen in 20 years.

Voter Registration Drive
In conjunction the Dallas County Elections Department, CoH and H4PJ will be registering voters and helping registered voters update their contact information after each morning service and prior to the afternoon service at Cathedral of Hope.

If you are not registered to vote, your registration has expired, or you’ve moved, had a name change, or the address on your card isn’t an exact match to your ID, you will need to get registered or update your voter registration before October 5 to vote on Election Day.
We are in need of volunteers each week to help with this vital effort. Contact us or stop by the voter registration desk to volunteer.
