Abstract: OAKLAND — Along San Pablo Avenue, International and MacArthur boulevards, underage women hang out talking on cell phones. The calls they take are in response to Craigslist sex ads they've posted, said Jim Saleda of the Oakland Police Department's Child Exploitation Unit. Over the years, police and local agencies have seen the phenomenon of child sex trafficking increase tenfold, officials said Thursday. To combat the complex problem, county and city officials and service agencies have launched a public awareness campaign that includes two one-minute public service video announcements created by the Youth Uprising staff.
