New Paradigms in Latino-Jewish Relations with Matt Fernández Konigsberg

Past Events


Monday, March 27th at 1:00 PM EST

Matt Fernández Konigsberg will speak about the current state of the Latino-American/ American-Jewish relationship, and how the clash of different ideological approaches (including classical liberalism and far-left ideology) create tension within and between the communities. Matt believes honest, well-informed discussion of ideas and freedom of expression is the key to progress and true liberalism. Matt is concerned with anti-Latino sentiment, the alarming rise of antisemitism, as well as supporting the decolonization of (and Congressional investment in) the island of Puerto Rico and its 3 million U.S. citizens.
