About Leah Soibel

Leah Soibel, a Hispanic American Israeli, has two decades of experience on the ground in Israel and elsewhere working with thousands of global Latino journalists and influencers, bringing millions of Spanish-speakers worldwide an accurate image of the Jewish people. In 2012, she founded Fuente Latina (FL), a US nonprofit and nonpartisan media organization ensuring that global non-Jewish Hispanic journalists have the facts they need – before and when stories break – to accurately cover Israel and the Jewish world in Spanish and in real time. She recently launched Activista Media, the first-ever bilingual (English/Spanish) digital news brand that engages the next generation of English-dominant US Latino journalists, influencers and online news consumers with stories aimed at breaking down stereotypes and increasing positive perceptions between millions of Latinos and Jews. Headquartered in Miami, with offices in Tel Aviv, Madrid, Los Angeles, and Mexico City, FL’s work has resulted in 2 TV Emmys wins and an Associated Press Broadcasting award.
