Angela Clements, a 2007 Point Scholar, grew up in a small farming community in rural Nebraska. While in college at the University of Nebraska, she organized students in opposition to an anti-gay constitutional amendment, successfully advocated for a domestic partner health benefits plan for students, and became involved in a number of other civil rights issues. As a result of her public service and academic accomplishments, she was named a Truman Scholar and graduated with honors. Ms. Clements went on to work at the Human Rights Campaign in Washington, D.C. where she lobbied Congress on a range of LGBT issues, including advocating for a fully inclusive Employment Nondiscrimination Act and working towards the successful defeat of the Federal Marriage Amendment in 2004 and 2006. Clements, an attorney, received her law degree from UC Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall) in 2009. She is currently a Legal Fellow at Berkeley Law's Center on Health, Economic, and Family Security.
