"Change takes courage." - AOC
In 2020, Belén helped create EDIFY, an advocacy initiative conceived by Nicole Johnson, founder of the nonprofit organization M.O.V.E.
The initiative offers a 5 week program that nourishes advocates as they explore their identities and the needs of vulnerable communities. Inspired by the lunch counter sit-ins of the 60s, it utilizes storytelling and presentation as catalysts for change. Participants connect with and edify one another through the EDIFY Justice Advocate App, building communities and courage. Belén serves as the Director of Curriculum and Presentation Manager, creating workbooks for facilitators and advocates, as well as outreach presentations.

Inspired by the work Immigrant Families Together does on behalf of asylum seeking families, Belén dedicated her 2020 birthday to raising funds for the organization. She produced a benefit concert, raising over $2,000, and hopes to continue advocating for children separated from their families at the southwest US/Mexico border.
¡Hola a todos! Belén is passionate about singing in her native tongue, as it connects her with her friends and family in Argentina. She also believes that diversity, equity, and inclusion for the Latinx theatre community will not be fully realized until a deep catalogue of Spanish language musicals are written/translated, with high caliber productions touring both American continents.
