  • Dear Erika,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment to our proposal. The rates of child sex trafficking in Oakland is very high although we couldn’t find stats by we could do later research. But we would appreciate if you would also support us in our movement by donating. Thank you

  • Dear Westcoast Children’s Clinic:

    We chose to write to your organization because we want to help stop child sex trafficking. We know that by doing this we won’t necessarily stop worldwide child trafficking,

    • Hello everyone.

      My name is Tania and I am a student at Fremont High School here in Oakland. I just read your project blog post and I have some feedback.
      One thing I liked about what you wrote was how you made the reading interesting. I liked how you used percentages of the races that are being the most sex trafficked. I also liked how in your article you are describing ideas on how to stop the sex trafficking.

      Something I have a question about is doesn’t Oakland have the most sex trafficking in the unity?

      Thank you for sharing your project!
      Tania

    • My name is Tamiya’h and I am a student at Fremont High School here in Oakland. I just read your project blog post and I have some feedback.
      One thing I liked about what you wrote was how serious you guys are about this topic, i like how you guys made it interesting with the percentages and stuff too.

      Something I have a question about is where else do they sex trafficking at.

      Thank you for sharing your project!

    • Dear Jennifer, Melody and francisco,

      I appreciated that you guys share this with us, since it’s a big issue not only in Oakland it’s all over the world. I liked the fact that you guys add logos, pathos and ethos. This is a very interested topic but I feel you guys can add more logos about Oakland like, What’s the percentage of Child Traffic here in Oakland? What is the percentage of Child Traffic in African American community? How about Hispanic community? But you guys did a great work! Since you guys give methods to stop it.

      Sincerely,

  • Dear Eli,

    Thank you for replying back to my essay about Nazi human research. Iḿ glad you agree with me about this topic.

  • Dear Ying,

    I was really amazed by your blog about Nazi experimentations on humans. I really liked how you engaged with the audience by asking questions that they could later answer to. I’m shocked what Nazi did to humans because before I didn’t know about this so I was informed after reading your blog. I agree with you that the experiments tha…[Read more]

  • Dear Kami,

    I was amazed by your blog! I love how you gave a short and detailed summary of each principle of bio ethnics. I also really liked how you started off your blog with a quote in the beginning and really engaging with your audience. Also I really liked how you not just included Nazi experiment research but also about Tuskegee, really good…[Read more]

  • Dead Eli,

    I was intrigued on your blog about animal and human testing. I really liked how you collected all of the information we learned in class. Another thing I really liked was how you gave a brief summary of each principal of bio ethics and how they relate to your research. I totally agree with you that human and animal research was not…[Read more]

    Did you knew that Nazis did medical experiments on humans ? On February 24, 1920 the Nazi party was founded. The Nazi was ruling in Germany an

    • Dear Jennifer,
      Your writing about the Nazi experiments was very good. It presented many different pieces of evidence and it made your claim very clear. I agree with you that the experiments are now beneficial to us because we were able to learn new things from these experiments but I don’t think this was the correct way to get answers to our questions. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to your read and learn from your future posts.

      • Dear Eli,

        Thank you for replying back to my essay about Nazi human research. Iḿ glad you agree with me about this topic.

    • I agree with you it was beneficial but it could have been achieved in a different way.

    • Dear Jennnifer,
      I agree with you. I think that some of those experiment were helpful while some were not and I think that in all of the experiments they should have found a way to make it as painless as possible.

  • Dear Saul,

    I found your name memoir really interesting and the meaning behind your name. One line that I really liked was, “On modern days, I share this name with celebrity that motivates me to do physically better on any kind on sport. Such as one on the best boxer worldwide, Saul “El canelo” Alvarez”. I find it cool that you share the same na…[Read more]

    Dear Lis,

    I found your memoir really interesting and I could relate to you in some way. I also have a name that I rather be called than me actual name. It’s pretty cool that you take names with meaning like your first name and your last name. A line that I really liked was “I don’t feel like I’m disrespecting my real name since Lis, is the fir…[Read more]

    Dear Vensa,

    I was really intrigued in reading your memoir. I found it very interesting that you have a nickname Bull and it was a nickname since you were little. I also have a nickname so I can relate kinda with you. One sentence that I really liked from your memoir is “As an individual, I believe that my names are two conflicting identities t…[Read more]

  • Dear Kayla,
    I’m glad that you enjoyed my blog! What is your opinion on Oakland’s culture? I would like to know. My opinion is that I’m in the middle I think it divides the community but unites the community at the same time. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and hopefully you will read what I write next!

  • I really enjoyed reading your blog on ICE in Oakland. It’s a topic that should be mention more. I enjoyed reading when you wrote “In Oakland there is a large community of undocumented people who do not always know their rights and how to avoid getting into problems that could get them deported.” I totally agree with you and those who are undoc…[Read more]

    I really enjoyed in reading your blog! I really liked how you decided to talk about the LGBTQ community and it’s a topic that nobody else talked about in their blogs.

    Do you often confuse Oakland with San Francisco? We shouldn’t confuse San Francisco and Oakland because they both have very different cultures. Oakland is a diverse communit

    • Dear Jennifer, Your blog was outstanding.
      Their was such great detail and you had a great hook. One sentence that stood out to me was” Although sideshows is a huge part of Oakland’s culture and unites the community it also divides the community by being a place where people can come together but can also get them arrested for all the violent and illegal
      “. This stood out to me because your are completely correct in my opinion.One question or comment that I had is i would love to see what your opinion is overall and what do you believe this does to our community. Thank you for writing this amazing blog on oakland and its culture. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

  • Dear Briceida,
    I really like your shadow box! I can also relate to you when you said that others think you are Muslim but you are actually Mexican- American. Just like me where people think that I am Mexican but I’m actually Salvadoran. It’s really good that you know the difference between dominant narrative and counter narrative. Also it’s good…[Read more]

  • Thank you Reyna I really appreciate the comment you left. I don’t think you are extra for not calling herself hispanic or latinx like you suppose to. You get to decided on how you want to identify yourself. I don’t be nosy but I wonder why you don’t call yourself hispanic? If you are comfortable sharing why I would really appreciate. Also I really…[Read more]

  • Dear Melody,
    I really like your box and your counter narrative about your box. I agree with you that family is everything to you. I also agree with you about growing up without your father and I can relate to you about that since my father left me when I was younger. Other things I agree with you is about being a student and also about Latina.
