YouTube Campaign Seeks to Spark New Immigration Dialogue

Define American

Nov 15, 2011 — Jose Antonio Vargas, the journalist famous for outing himself as an illegal U.S. immigrant in The New York Times, and his organization Define American have launched a social media campaign to start a conversation about illegal immigrants and reforming the immigration system.

The campaign encourages Americans all across the world to share their personal stories about “what it means to be an American” and the effects of the immigration system on their lives. Users can share their story via text, audio or in the form of a YouTube video.
