Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle

Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle is a Chicago-based organizer, translator and interpreter. He is a member of La Voz de los de Abajo, one of the founding organizations of the Honduras Solidarity Network. He has been accompanying Honduran social movements for over two decades, doing support work alongside assassinated indigenous leader Berta Caceres and her organization COPINH, leading human rights observation and electoral monitoring delegations and organizing speaking tours and solidarity efforts in the U.S. in support of Honduran social movements. He is also the translator of 13 Colors of the Honduran Resistance, a book of short stories by feminist writer Melissa Cardoza about women who joined the resistance to the 2009 coup d’etat in Honduras. In Chicago, he serves on the board of the grassroots organization he co-founded, Southside Together Organizing for Power, though most of his current political work is helping build the left independent political project United Working Families in the largely immigrant and refugee neighborhood where he, his wife Victoria and their one-year-old son Harvey live.
