Angel Ulloa (she/her) joined Earthworks in June 2022 as the Permian Gulf Coast Coalition Coordinator supporting the coalition in taking on the oil and gas industry.
She was born in El Paso, Texas, moved to Biloxi, Mississippi with her family when she was 2 and back to El Paso at the age of 8. After returning, even as a child she noticed the gas plants built on hundreds of acres of lands right in the middle of neighborhoods were not humane. She feared for her community and the generations of her family that lived in close proximities to these facilities, and the damage these could do to them, both in El Paso and its neighboring city – Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua. After graduating from college, Angel returned to El Paso to fight the oligarchs poisoning the city that has her heart and the people that she loves. She joined the local Sunrise chapter in 2019 where she worked with other environmental activists and frontline groups on the No JP Morgan, Reject Newman 6, and Climate Charter Ballot Initiative campaigns. She envisions a world where everyone, in Texas and beyond, can have access to clean, reliable, and affordable energy.
Angel holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from the University of Texas at Austin. Outside of her work she is passionate about starting a bonsai tree collection inspired by one of her favorite movies – The Karate Kid – bingo nights, and making sure everyone is aware Ringo Starr is the best Beatle.
