 With our inaugural charity 5k run/walk in 2018, we began our journey of communal advocacy in an area that largely impacts African American women and girls: Human Trafficking Awareness. As we continue our mission to cultivate Black Excellence through the inspiration of African American women, it is important that we also do the work to ensure our children are healthy and whole. Taking on the role of an advocate in the community, this civic engagement event provides us the opportunity to assist in the efforts of mitigating the perils of human trafficking, which is, unfortunately, impacting the African American community in the Oakland/Bay Area in a significant way. 

 The We Run Oakland: For Our Children series is an annual family/community charity event focused on our collective responsibility to STOP human trafficking and exploitation. Through the partnerships of local organizations, the main goal is to bridge the gap between community, resources, and self-care.



DO & A Sista's Touch will host our 7th annual charity, 5K, on Saturday, August 24th, to continue our efforts of raising Human Trafficking Awareness. We look forward to continuing the momentum of awareness, seeing returning participants, and welcoming those who will join us for the first time. We hope you will be inspired to stay involved and engaged with one of our community partners and, more importantly, learn that IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!
