Join DO and A Sista’s Touch (AST) as we continuing our effort to assist in the fight to STOP human trafficking with our 3rd annual charity 5k event: We Run Oakland: For Our Children.

With the core of AST’s mission to empower African American women across all generations, the goal of the inaugural We Run Oakland: For Our Daughters was to increase community awareness on human trafficking for the safety of our daughters; especially since the largest population of those affected are Black girls and women. On our journey to learn from and engage with the local community based partners who provide services to those impacted by human trafficking, we learned the efforts to support survivors is significant, but the commitment to conquer the demand is much more consequential.

Through this realization, the goal of the 3rd annual charity 5k event, We Run Oakland: For Our Children is to continue the community push in understanding the vastness of this epidemic on a local level and understand how we as a collective can influence incremental change to achieve positive outcomes. This year, our goal is to increase awareness through the emphasis of teaching RESPECT between “him” & “her”; to teach our daughters AND our sons of the perils of human trafficking.

We Run Oakland: For Our Children will highlight the importance of Our Children in:
1. Learning how to RESPECT themselves through the development of self-love and self-confidence;
2. Understanding how to treat their Brutha and Sista with RESPECT through the elimination of exploitation.
