Sensitive to humanitarian causes, she has given visibility to several of them over the years, such as the indigenous cause, the preservation of the environment, and the fight against deforestation. Since 2019 Leticia has been actively engaging with UNHCR Brazil to shed light on the refugee plight, engaging her millions of followers on digital channels during World Humanitarian Day, Education Month, Children's Day, UNHCR 70th anniversary, and Mother's Day.

In February 2021,  she narrated Brazil's Public Service Announcement called "Refugees - Interrupted Lives”, which was broadcast widely across different Brazilian television stations through pro bono partnerships. 

In May 2021, for Mother's Day, Spiller participated in a virtual chat with two refugee mothers living in Brazil, Lucia Loxca and Marifer Vargas. In June 2021, on World Refugee Day, she was invited to spread a message of inclusion and give voice to refugees living in Brazil by recording special videos showing her positive sentiment towards displaced people and her openness to engage with UNHCR. In October 2021, she used her digital platforms to celebrate Children's Day and to talk about forced displacement during childhood. She invited her social media followers to join the cause. 

In April 2022, she appeared in Juliette's Freire live. Juliette is a Brazilian singer and digital influencer.
