As an outspoken environmental activist, Ben describes his work as "leveraging the power of music to educate, inspire, and empower young people to help solve the most pressing issues of our time."
In 2019 he founded the Econiños project, which shines a spotlight on grassroots organizations that are addressing critical issues in their communities and fostering youth leadership. Developed in partnership with Green Latinos
and Moms Clean Air Force
, the project activates a nationwide network of over one million parents who are working together to safeguard the environment and protect our children’s health.
Ben performs annually on Capitol Hill as part of the Play-In For Climate Action, an event that spurs legislators to fight for climate safety, keep toxic chemicals out of our homes, and put an end to the corruption at the EPA. He has also performed at the National Climate Rally. He has written numerous songs about environmental issues and has been commissioned by the National Forest Service to address the critical role that bats serve in the stability of our ecosystems.
