Having grown up in the Gulf Coast of Texas, Angel Amaya’s work to challenge corporate abuse stems from her grassroots work in her hometown community, which was often negatively impacted by the oil and gas industry. Angel learned early on about the power of community solutions and the importance of bringing awareness to the issues her community faced.

Angel has always been motivated by and passionate about the power of storytelling. She has many fond memories of filming and developing documentaries at a young age, including capturing local marches in South Texas for immigrant rights. This interest led her to study English at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and to later enroll at The New School in New York City for her Masters, where she studied media and documentary filmmaking.

For 15 years, Angel has leveraged her strategic communications skills to advance human rights and environmental justice. She’s worked with organizations across issue areas, including Human Rights Watch, Vote Smart, Proof: Media for Social Justice, Public Citizen, and the Western Organization of Resource Councils.

As a documentarian, Angel served as producer on the Showtime documentary, Beyond The Opposite Sex and the independent award-winning documentary, Elephant Keeper. She has also produced many short documentaries and managed storytelling projects that exposed the abuses of the oil and gas industry, and countered the harmful narratives of Big Food & Agriculture.

At Corporate Accountability, Angel leads the communications team in advancing our campaigns across digital channels and in the media through effective storytelling. She also leads on developing systems for effective planning and collaboration.
