Angela E. Oh is an attorney/mediator who handles cases involving discrimination, hate crimes, sexual harassment, among other civil rights claims that are meant to protect individuals from injury, physical and emotional. Her experience as a trial lawyer, a community-based advocate for civil and human rights, and member of select commissions and boards gives Oh a perspective on race relations that goes beyond dualities. She began the first national dialogue on race during the Clinton administration when Dr. John Hope Franklin chaired the seven-member advisory board to the President’s Initiative on Race. She has also chaired the federal judicial nominations committee for the Central District of California, served as a member of the Human Relations Commission of Los Angeles, and most recently, co-created the Black/AAPI Healing Circle work in Los Angeles as part of the Gift of Compassion project at Commonweal.
