Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price’s H.E.A.R.T. Team to Lead Anti-Human Trafficking Event in Oakland

January 23, 2024

Oakland, CA – On Wednesday, January 24, 2024, Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price’s Human Exploitation Assistance and Response Team leads a Public Safety March, Rally, and Resource Fair in Oakland’s San Antonio Neighborhood.

The Public Safety March starts at 2:00 PM at the intersection of 17th Ave & International Blvd. It will proceed to the Rally and Resource Fair at San Antonio Park, a few blocks away from a frequent human trafficking hub commonly referred to as “the Blade.”

“During this month’s two safety walks with the H.E.A.R.T. Team, I saw with my own eyes the realities of human trafficking in our community,” said DA Pamela Price. “I saw adults and young people, many of whom I believe to be children as young as 13, standing in the rain for hours. We offered help, and some accepted. We hope to reach more people willing to accept assistance on Wednesday.”

These events are happening during National Human Trafficking Awareness Month and bring together several partnering organizations, community groups, and law enforcement agencies including Alameda County DA’s Victim Witness Assistance Division, BAWAR, Banteay Srei, EBAYC, Alameda County District Attorney Family Justice Center, F.B.I., FOSAP, Justice At Last, Highland Hospital, Love Never Fails, MISSEY, Nola Brantley of Nola Brantley Speaks, the Oakland Police Department, Oakland Unified School District, Planned Parenthood, SHADE, and TRYBE.
