Sacramento, CA – Unbeknownst to the Prosecutors Alliance that sponsored Monday’s press conference where a number of crime survivors told their stories, their event would coincide with a caravan demonstration by the People’s Convoy, protesting vaccine mandates and other causes.

The dynamic put a number of people into close proximity with the pre-planned press conference and generated heckling and shouting that at times was triggering to a number of the crime survivors already traumatized by their experience.

The press conference brought together DAs, state legislators and survivors of crime to announce the findings of a survey of 711 victims of crime and to discuss important initiatives necessary to enhance California’s approach to helping victims heal.
