Natalia is a community educator, cultural organizer, and memory worker, with ancestral roots in Colombia. As the Program Manager for the United States, they support activists, grassroots organizations, advocates, and legal experts across the U.S. to better utilize video and technology to expose abuses, create counter-narratives, and fight for accountability.

Natalia’s practice includes the use of participatory arts, media, and story-telling projects for movement building, accountability, and liberation. They bring to WITNESS over a decade of experience in designing resources, leading trainings, and envisioning new programs to defend the rights and uplift the leadership of immigrant, Indigenous, Black, POC, and LGBTQ2S+ people.

In 2014, they designed and facilitated a participatory documentation process for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Colombia with Afro-descendant and Indigenous youth and elders to find community-led solutions to the impacts of forced displacement. In 2018, Natalia founded Lion’s Tooth Project, a youth-led initiative for QTBIPOC young people in the U.S.
