Felicity Figueroa

Felicity is a community advocate, activist and organizer working to promote human and civil rights. She is a founding board member and current co-chair of the Orange County Equality Coalition, an organization that came into being after the passage of Prop 8 and is dedicated to protecting the rights of OC’s LGBTQI community with a special focus on trans rights and on the rights of gay and gender-nonconforming school children in the county. Felicity also serves on the board of Women For: Orange County, where she chairs the Great American Write-In, an annual event that brings together non-profit/progressive organizations and the general public to write letters to legislators and corporate heads on pressing social issues.

Felicity lived in Mexico City for twelve years, so immigrant rights are a major area of concern for her. She began working with the Friends of OC Detainees in 2012, supporting immigrants and asylum seekers in confinement in Orange County, and is currently a dedicated volunteer with the OC Rapid Response Network. She is the Ministries Board chair of her church, Irvine United Congregational, and is very involved with interfaith work as a board member of the Newport Mesa Irvine Interfaith Council; she is also an active member of CLUE-OC (Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice). She is VP of Membership for the OC chapter of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State and serves on the Executive Committee of the OC NAACP. She also loves dancing, Zumba class and getting her hands dirty in the garden.
