OCCET Action was founded in 2017 to build an AAPI-Latinx-Labor-Environmental Justice Alliance and to develop progressive political power. This has been the result of decades of community organizing and integrated voter engagement in the region. Underrepresented communities across Orange County have undergone significant shifts in local empowerment in recent years.
OCCET Action is committed to a long-term progressive transformation of the electorate and will continue to move towards the change that our people deserve.
