JUSTICE FOR ALL TO HIGHLIGHT PEOPLE AND PROGRAMS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN ALAMEDA COUNTY
Justice For All, an immersive multi-media program, has been designed to bring attention to the many different programs and services offered by the Alameda County District Attorney's office. It consists of a new podcast, Justice For All, which tells real stories from survivors of violence and victims of human trafficking. Of people putting their lives back together through an innovative re-entry and clean slate program. Of how the DA is going after big businesses who try to skirt environmental laws, and how elders and their families can protect themselves from abuse and scams.

In addition to the podcast, we have also launched a new microsite that will house our podcast, interactive stories for a closer look into the issues affecting our community, as well as new ways to interact with our office.

NATIONAL
DRUG TAKE BACK DAY 2019- IT'S TIME TO CLEAN OUT YOUR MEDICINE CABINET!
The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, in partnership with the US Drug Enforcement Administration, is participating in National Drug Take Back Day.
Members of the community are given the opportunity and encouraged to bring any unused, unwanted and/or expired prescription or over the counter medication for free, confidential and safe disposal. Pet medications are also accepted. Safe disposal of these medications is vital to prevent the misuse of these substances, and to end the harmful environmental impacts of disposing of them in landfill or through our water system. The DA's office will set up disposal centers at the Dublin, Alameda, and Fremont courthouses as well as the Alameda County Family Justice Center. The public can safely dispose of medications on April 27 at any one of these locations between 10am and 2pm. Location addresses.
ILLEGAL DUMPING
PILOT PROGRAM
The DA’s Office is proud to partner with Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley on his regional Illegal Dumping Taskforce to combat this issue from a three-pronged strategy approach to reduce and prevent illegal dumping: Education, Eradication and Enforcement.

“Illegal dumping is an environmental justice issue we can’t ignore. The District Attorney’s Office looks forward to working with Supervisor Miley, the City of Oakland, and the residents of neighborhoods suffering the effects of illegal dumping. Our two great hopes are to help communities become healthier, safer, and stronger and to learn what works so we can better assist other neighborhoods throughout the city and county.” - Nancy O'Malley

DENIM DAY
April 24 is National Denim Day, coinciding with Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The campaign began after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped the person who raped her remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. The Denim Day campaign was created in response to that case and embraced activism surrounding it. Wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual harassment, abuse, assault and rape. The DA’s Office joins in this sexual violence prevention and education campaign to make a social statement via a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual violence.
