Me and ole girl filmed for Oprah's "Black Love". It was an amazing experience. I don't know when it will air or even if it will, though they assured us it would. I thought I'd share a snippet of our initial interview. Enjoy. One Love Campbell

WRO Update!! Date Change! Saturday September 19th

To Our We Run Oakland: For Our Children Community,

For the past two weeks our local communities, city, state, and nation have taken specific action to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak. As we continue to comply with the shelter in place order issued by Gov Newsom to slow the progression of the novel coronavirus of 2019, A Sista’s Touch Board of Directors has made the decision to postpone the annual charity 5k to September 19, 2020. The location, time, and the advocacy to build community safety while combatting human trafficking will remain the same.

Visit our Website for more information! www.asistastouch.org

During this time, we encourage you to hold loved ones near and keep in perspective what is most important; life. We are praying for you and your family’s safety during this time.
