El Sobrante pimp gets five years, eight months in state prison for Orange County trafficking case

In conjunction with Human Trafficking Day of Action, community members, law enforcement and service providers plan to head out to business areas across West Contra Costa County on Thursday, Jan. 23, with the aim of posting informational “Know the Signs” posters.

Residents from the community are invited to join the effort from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., with attendees meeting at the West Contra Costa Family Justice Center at 256 24th St. in Richmond.

Participants will break into teas and head to business areas to ask business owners to post the posters, which come in both English and Spanish and offer resource information for trafficking victims.

The event is a collaboration involving Contra Costa Family Justice Center, Community Violence Solutions, Contra Costa Human Trafficking Coalition, 23rd Street Merchants’ Association, The Richmond Police Department, and Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office.
