The New York Young Republican Club is proud to announce the establishment of a formal partnership with the Budapest-based Center for Fundamental Rights. This partnership builds on years of collaboration and dialogue, including meetings between the organizations which have taken place on both sides of the Atlantic.
In the partnership agreement executed by New York Young Republican Club President Gavin Wax and Center for Fundamental Rights Director General Miklós Szánthó on February 22, 2023, the two organizations noted that they “do not think in terms of supranationalism, but in terms of cooperation between national forces.”
The organizations “resolve[d] to formally reaffirm [their] joint efforts to make Western Civilization, based on Judeo-Christian culture, and the transatlantic conservative relationship even stronger.” This critical action will grant the New York Young Republican Club access to additional thought leadership generated by the Center, which is relevant because “[c]onservatives around the world are confronted with similar threats. Advocates of left-wing progressivism have turned human rights against the people. They have made radical, extreme demands of the rational majority, and have raised the banner of relativizing the facts inherent in the natural order of things.”
The New York Young Republican Club and the Center for Fundamental Rights look forward to announcing further details of the partnership in the coming months.
Wax led a multi-day New York Young Republican Club delegation to Budapest, where he also engaged in a media tour. Television interviews aired on the M1 and Hír TV networks on February 22, 2023. The New York Young Republican Club will announce Wax’s additional media appearances after their respective releases.
The New York Young Republican Club is the oldest and largest Young Republican club in the United States, with a heritage dating to 1856. Today, it is the most vocal America First organization operating in the New York Metropolitan Area, and it sets the trend for innovation in young adult outreach supporting local, state, and federal political candidates.
The Budapest-based Center for Fundamental Rights (Alapjogokért Központ) is a Hungarian research institute dealing with legal analysis since 2013. The Center considers preserving national identity, sovereignty and Christian social traditions as its mission, especially amongst the 21st century’s heightened process of globalization, integration, geopolitical and technological changes, affecting the field of law as well. Besides these, it is a well-known aim of the Center to form a counter against today’s overgrown human rights-fundamentalism and political correctness that have been affecting numerous aspects of our everyday life. The research fields cover a wide scale of branches of law that are subject of public interest, from questions of classic constitutional law, through electoral systems to EU-law.
