|Councilman López travels to Israel |
Councilman López was invited along with other Latino Leaders from across the United States, to participate in a week long educational seminar in Israel to discuss critical policy and security issues affecting both countries.
The Councilman will participate in discussions with current and former Israeli government officials, Palestinian Authority representatives, leading academics, and journalists to gain a better understanding of Israeli’s approach to international and domestic issues.
The group will also tour religious sites in Jerusalem and near the Sea of Galilee, and will participate in strategic surveys of Israel’s border with Lebanon, Syria, and Gaza.
“This is a great opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of Israeli politics, society and culture and how we can incorporate these lessons into our local decisions,” said Councilman López.
