Under the leadership of Alameda County District Attorney Nancy E. O'Malley, H.E.A.T. Watch has developed various anti-human trafficking initiatives to engage the community, support the recovery of victims, and hold offenders accountable.
Through our quarterly Bay Area H.E.A.T. Coalition (BAHC) trainings, Billboard campaigns, and graphic novels, we educate the community about the issue of human trafficking and what H.E.A.T. Watch does to combat it.
Using our award-winning inter-agency meeting model, SafetyNet, the Young Women’s Saturday Program, and Girls Court provide direct services to victims of commercial sex trafficking at the Juvenile Justice Center. Thanks to generous grants from various non-profit and foundation partners, we have created H.E.A.T. Watch Labor, the H.E.A.T. Institute Think Tank, and the CEASE Network Oakland Core team to test innovative tactics and identify new approaches to comprehensively prevent human trafficking.
