Angeles Ochoa

Digital Organizer

Before OCCORD, Angeles worked as a Civic Engagement Grants and Administrative Coordinator at NALEO Educational Fund. Her introduction to OCCORD came through a previous employer involved in Citizenship application services. Angeles recently graduated from UCLA, where, as a 4th-year student in the Luskin School of Public Affairs, she interned with a non-profit in the Eastern Coachella Valley. Her work focused on underrepresented, low-income residents in mobile home parks, encompassing outreach and research in renewable energy infrastructure. This effort culminated in a comprehensive 50-page policy report advocating for the inclusion of mobile home parks in California's transition plans to a sustainable future. As a woman of color from Santa Ana, Angeles has experienced and witnessed various forms of oppression, inspiring her to contribute to breaking cycles of oppression and marginalization. Angeles is passionate about film, television, and digital media, having minored in FTVDM at UCLA. She enjoys exploring the behind-the-scenes aspects of films and writing screenplays in her free time. Outside of work, Angeles is dedicated to community service and cherishing moments with her family.
