This is the index to Oakland Local's complete May 2010 series on youth trafficking, a growing problem in Oakland, Calif. Investigative reporters Barbara Grady and Sarah Terry-Cobo spent six weeks on "the track," Oakland's International Boulevard, talking with survivors, police, social services advocates and the district attorney's office to get inside the booming problem of trafficked youth in Oakland.
