Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price — the only Black person, ever, elected to the job in the county’s 169-year history — announced a transition team of more than two dozen civil rights and police accountability experts, nonprofit leaders, pastors, and justice system reform activists who supported Price’s progressive platform but, crucially, are also ready to hold her accountable. Cynthia Nuñez, the decarceration campaign coordinator for Urban Peace Movement weighed in on this historic moment for Alameda County for the San Francisco Chronicle: “There’s an opportunity to end the criminalization of Black and brown people under District Attorney Price.”
Urban Peace Movement also heads the District Attorney Accountability Table, a coalition of community organizations dedicated to police reform and justice system equity. While members of Urban Peace Movement helped to mobilize voters to support Price, they are prepared to make sure that she is “working collaboratively with the community to hear what they want from the D.A.’s office.”
