Jen Angel was a female business-owning anarchist living in California. Jen Angel owned the Angel Cakes bakery in Oakland, California. On 6 February 2023 two men smashed Angel's car window and decamped with her purse. Angel chased the men's getaway car but became entangled in the door and was dragged for 50ft (17m) down the road. During this period she struck her head.[1][2]

Jen Angel was rushed to hospital and put in an induced coma. She was declared dead on 9 February 2023.[3][4]

Friends of Jen Angel put up a GoFundMe and had this to say about her:

“As a long-time social movement activist and anarchist, Jen did not believe in state violence, carceral punishment or incarceration as an effective or just solution to social violence and inequity,” [5] [6]

Her friends and family have called on state to use restorative justice rather than traditional punishments if the offenders are caught.[7][8]

Jen Angel helped to found the anarchist organisation Agency.

Jen Angel was discussed on episode 14 of The Goal Post.[9]
