Fremont, CA. August 30, 2023 – The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office was delighted to participate in the 31st annual FOG (Festival of Globe) Indian Day Parade and Fair.
The two-day annual event commemorated India’s independence and brought thousands of people to Fremont, one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse cities in the Bay Area. More than sixty percent of Fremont residents are of Asian descent and the celebration of this diversity was evident in the parade of floats representing Asian countries, including India, China, Nepal, Vietnam and Burma.
Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price, a guest of honor at the event, was given a community service award for her role in promoting harmony among Alameda County’s diverse communities.
“We wanted to show our appreciation for Ms. Price who has shown so much commitment to the betterment of our community,” said Kalika Prasad, the parade organizer.
“I am truly humbled to be honored by Alameda County’s AAPI community,” said Pamela Price. “It is heartening to see thousands of people come together to celebrate cultural diversity and inclusivity. Our Office is committed to safeguarding the rights of our Asian communities and all communities, and we approach this responsibility with a genuine spirit of friendship and solidarity.”
