Oakland mayoral candidate Pamela Price on police reform, SCOTUS, and revitalizing downtown

Oct 10, 2018

This spring, civil rights attorney Pamela Price lost the race for Alameda County District Attorney. Her name is on the ballot again, this time for mayor of Oakland.

Before practicing law, Price grew up in the foster care system and later survived an abusive relationship. She is one of a few black female attorneys to argue before the U.S. Supreme Court. 

"To me Oakland is a world-class city and should look like a world-class city."

Price sat down with KALW’s Jenee Darden at her campaign headquarters.
