Sonia is on the board of the Colorado Hispanic Bar Association, which is committed to expanding legal opportunities for Hispanic attorneys in Colorado.

She also strives to engage and educate Latino students about careers in the legal industry. She mentors college students who want to attend law school for Law School Yes We Can and frequently speaks to the Latino Law Student Association at her alma mater, the University of Colorado.
