Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price Commemorates Domestic Violence Awareness Month with 21st Annual Day of Remembrance
October 24, 2023
Oakland – Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price is commemorating the 21rst Annual Day of Remembrance during Domestic Violence Awareness month on Friday, October 27, at the Family Justice Center in Oakland. On this day we remember the victims who have been murdered resulting from domestic violence and to empower women, children, and men who have survived physical, emotional and mental abuse often-times by someone they once loved.
“I am also a survivor of domestic violence,” says DA Price. “My office is committed to seeking justice on behalf of victims.” One of the first things District Attorney Pamela Price did after taking office is expand the DA’s Domestic Violence Unit, because she says, “in any given year my office is reviewing 5,000 domestic violence arrests.”
The Day of Remembrance includes the reading of names of victims killed in domestic violence incidents in Alameda County since 1996. It also serves to recognize all the agencies, County departments, commissions, community-based organizations, and individuals whose work is essential in the ongoing effort to eliminate domestic violence in Alameda County.
The Alameda County Family Justice Center works with dozens of agencies, community partners, police departments and other groups that respond and provide service for victims of domestic violence and their children. This interagency collaboration is a model for how to provide wrap-around services to victims.
DA Price states, “We need to act. Let us stand together to protect lives, support survivors, and commit to end domestic violence.”
