The Battle To End Gun Violence Takes Center Stage in Oakland 

OAKLAND — Dozens of people gathered at the Alameda County Family Justice Center on Friday, June 2, 2023 to support Gun Violence Restraining Order Day. The community outreach event was just an important part of Wear Orange Weekend, which was designed to bring attention to the fight to end gun violence and to the facilities available for people in need of help. 

Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price has been vocal about the fact that halting the proliferation of guns and the tragedies they cause is a top priority for her administration and for herself. 

A long list of advocate groups and community-based partners, as well as employees from the District Attorney’s office turned out in force to offer assistance to the public with GVROs, mental health, housing alternatives, family counseling and support for parents. The participants included:
