Beatriz is a passionate activist, who cares deeply about social justice, equity, and the immigrant community. She was born in Guanajuato, Mexico. Beatriz has been exposed to social problems including Nicaragua´s insurrection in 2018, homelessness, hunger, inadequate access to housing and education, and food insecurity. Through these experiences, she has come to realize that the solution to our biggest social barriers begin at home with local activism.

Also, she serves in the Executive Board for ACLU Colorado, and is a member of the La Plata Food Equity Coalition, where she served as a Community Voice Facilitator. In addition, she is part of the Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging group for the local School District, and she partners with the Durango 9-R Board of Education as a Thought Leader Committee. In 2020, Beatriz was nominated for the Kathy Underhill Scholarship Award for contributing to food and health equity through advocacy, policy, and community engagement. In 2021, Beatriz was selected by the Community Relations Commission for the City of Durango as one member of the community who deserves to be mentioned in the Community Spotlight section of the annual report to the City Council because she is a model of action in community care in equitable ways.
