2012 National Human Exploitation And Trafficking (H.E.A.T.) Watch Conference


Come see for yourself why the New York Times voted Oakland
number 5 in the “45 Places to Go in 2012”



Oakland is home to a vibrant dining, bar and art scene, and has become a destination in itself. The city boasts of the greatest number of artists per capita in the United States, and as local columnist Herb Caen famously wrote, “the best restaurant in San Francisco is in Oakland“.

There is plenty to do in the vicinity of the conference venue. The Victorian neighborhood of Old Oakland has been revived with eclectic mix of restaurants and cafés, peppered with wine bars, art galleries and boutique brewhouses. Oakland’s Chinatown has some of the best Chinese cuisine in the country.


At Oakland’s historic port district of Jack London Square you can dine on award-winning cuisine by the waterfront, sample wines at cellar doors, catch a matinee movie, rent a kayak or step back in time on board President Roosevelt’s ‘Floating White House’, the Potomac.


Walk the scenic 3.1 mile path, hire a paddle boat or enjoy a gondola ride to fully explore the beauty of Lake Merritt, the first official wildlife refuge in the United States. Only a few miles from downtown, head into the Oakland hills to explore a hidden redwood forest with trees over 150 feet tall.


Spend a few hours at the Oakland Museum of California, one of the leading cultural institutions in the nation. Their interesting collections and programs foster an integrated understanding of California’s dynamic cultural and environmental heritage.


For aficionados, the Oakland area is home to many superb live music venues. Enjoy Oakland’s jazz scene at Yoshi’s, contemporary acts at the Fox Theatre, and everything from symphony to soul at the Paramount Theatre.


San Francisco is only a ten minute train ride across the bay from Oakland, and wine country about an hour away. So why not make a weekend of it and see all the greater Bay Area has to offer?
