Episode Notes

Congressman Ritchie Torres, who built his career on progressive causes, has proven to be one of the most vocally pro-Israel members of Congress while also managing to be a unifying figure, building bridges between and among his diverse constituencies.

In this episode of The Glue, we talk to Torres about  shoring up ties between the Black and Jewish communities, how we should think about DEI in an age of rampant antisemitism on college campuses, and how social media networks such as TikTok are fueling hatred and driving wedges between us.
