Prostitution and sex trafficking in Oakland has been a problem for years. It was hoped that the scandal surrounding the Oakland police department and sexual solicitation would be the spark to make a real impact on the problem, but it hasn't. If anything it's more blatant than ever with girls regularly walking the streets at all hours of the day. There is particularly high activity in the San Antonio and Oak Tree neighbourhoods with multiple workers actively working at any given time. The customers and the worker's "employers" seem to have no fear of punishment which enables the whole system. This is an issue for the workers themselves and for the community, as everybody gets put at risk whether they are in direct contact, or not. Moving these girls onto a different area isn't a solution. The root of the problem needs addressing with viable alternatives and support given to the girls, some of whom are clearly underage. Let's stop sex solicitation for good.
