Why Join OCA-GLA?

OCA-GLA does amazing work for the community.  On the local level, we do everything from offering local residents grants and assistance with citizenship to hosting our annual IMAGE Awards to honor the most active members of Los Angeles APA community.  On the federal level, we have over 40 sister chapters across the nation and one of the largest membership-based non-profit headquarters in D.C. to advocate and tackle issues like immigration, healthcare, and Census that directly affect the our families and communities.
