About the Presenters:

Ben Gundersheimer is a Latin GRAMMY Award-winning artist, author, activist and educator. Hailed as “a bilingual rock star” by the Washington Post, he was originally dubbed MISTER G by his young students while pursuing a Master of Education degree. His dynamic, interactive bilingual performances aim to dissolve borders and foster cross-cultural connections.

A graduate of Amherst College and the recipient of the first songwriting scholarship awarded by the Berklee College of Music, Ben created a curriculum that incorporates songwriting as a learning tool for his Masters of Education thesis. 

Also an author, Ben has published two picture books with Penguin Random House based on his original, bilingual songs. “Señorita Mariposa” chronicles the extraordinary migration of the monarch butterflies from Canada to Mexico, while “Lilah Tov Good Night” is a lyrical lullaby which celebrates the beauty of our world and the spirit of resilience in a refugee family.

An outspoken environmental activist, Ben has performed at the National Climate Rally and headlined annual concerts on Capitol Hill. His environmental partners include, the US Forest Service, Eco Niños, Moms Clean Air Force and Corazon Latino.

Dr. Analucía Lopezrevoredo is a Peruvian-Chilean-Quechua-American Jewtina, born in Peru and raised in Spain and the United States. 

An anti-oppression activist, educator and researcher, Analucía founded Jewtina y Co. in 2019 to offer Latin Jews from around the world a platform in which to celebrate and engage in critical dialogue about Jewish and Latin multiculturalism. Prior to starting Jewtina y Co., she worked at JIMENA, OneTable, the Center to Advance Racial Equity in Portland, Oregon, and organized as a migrant rights advocate in California’s Central Valley, southwestern México and southeastern Perú. 

Analucía’s educational background lies in critical race and cross-cultural studies, and her doctoral research was centered around Latino immigrant and refugee resiliency. She is the recipient of the National Young Woman of Distinction award, is a former Fulbright and Rotary International Scholar, sits on JDC Entwine’s Council, is a member of the Schusterman Foundation’s “ROI Community” and the Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York’s “The Collective,” and is a Wexner Field Fellow.  A passionate global citizen, she’s traveled to over 125 countries and has lived in five continents.
