In 2013, the Orange County May Day Coalition is a community-centered coalition of organizations and individuals; member organizations included: Chican@s Unidos, DeColores Queer OC, El Centro Cultural de México, Industrial Workers of the World, OC DREAM Team, OC Peace Coalition, Occupy Santa Ana, SEIU-USWW, and Colectivo Tonantzin.
In 2011, the Coalition worked tirelessly to win a more just impound policy in Santa Ana, California. The issue of unjust towing became a battleground when cities such as Maywood and Montebello seized cars in immigrant communities to raise cash. In Orange County, Santa Ana impounds more cars at state-funded drunk-driving checkpoints than any other police agency.
