In California, the legal response to human trafficking, sexual assault, and domestic violence has changed significantly largely due to the efforts of Alameda County District Attorney Nancy E. O’Malley. Join us on February 22 for the luncheon meeting of the Democratic Women of Monterey County where we highlight this nationally recognized champion for children, women, and other victims of crime. The public is invited to attend.
DA O’Malley is the first woman to serve as Alameda County’s elected District Attorney. She founded the Family Justice Center to serve victims of crime and Human Exploitation and Trafficking (HEAT) and founded HEATWatch, a unit to lead the statewide charge against human trafficking. Her efforts have helped change perceptions about those trafficked – treating them not as criminals, but as victims.
In 2010, DA O’Malley launched the HEAT Watch program, a replicable, multi-disciplinary 5-prong blueprint to unite prosecutors, law enforcement, service providers, lawmakers and communities in the fight against human trafficking. HEAT Watch – the first of its kind in California and the first to operate within a public prosecution office – is a national model in wide use around the country. The Alameda County DA’s Office has prosecuted more than 50 percent of all human trafficking cases in California.
