Pamela Price was raised in Cincinnati, Ohio.  She joined the civil rights movement when she was 13 years old.  She is a survivor of the Ohio juvenile justice and foster care systems.  She graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in Political Science in 1978.  While at Yale, she spent her Junior Year Abroad in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, East Africa.  

In 1977, Price joined the landmark case of Alexander (Price) v. Yale, the first sexual harassment case brought under Title IX.  The Court dismissed the five other plaintiffs and Price was the only plaintiff to proceed to trial in January 1979.  (Alexander v. Yale, 459 F.Supp. 1 (D.Conn. 1979), 631 F.2d 178 (2nd Cir. 1980).)  The case established that sexual harassment in education is illegal and led to the establishment of grievance procedures at every level of education to comply with Title IX.  In June 2012, on Title IX’s 40th Anniversary, Price and her co-plaintiffs in Alexander v. Yale were honored as one of the Nine Most Influential Actors in Title IX History by the ACLU ( 

After Yale, Price attended Berkeley School of Law where she received her J.D. and a Master’s degree in Jurisprudence & Social Policy in 1982.  In June 1991, she founded her own firm in Oakland. In 2002, Price’s Firm made legal history in Morgan v. Amtrak, 232 F.3d 1008 (9th Cir. 2000), 536 U.S. 101, 112 S.Ct. 1516 (2002), by winning the appeal of a defense verdict first in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal and then in the U.S. Supreme Court.  Price is one of a handful of African-American women who have ever argued a case in the United States Supreme Court.  For her groundbreaking efforts in Morgan, including her victory in the U.S. Supreme Court, Price was named the 2002 California Lawyer Attorney of the Year in Employment (CLAY Award). 

Every year since 2004, Price has been named one of the top 5% of Northern California “Super Lawyers” by San Francisco Magazine.  Price has received numerous awards including the African-American Policy Forum’s Pauli Murray Trailbrazer Award (2018), the National Bar Association’s Heman Marion Sweatt Award (2011), the National Lawyers Guild Bay Area Chapter Champion of Justice (2016) and the Clinton W. White Trial Advocacy Award (1993, 2001). In 2017, she was honored by Assemblymember Rob Bonta and the California Legislature as the Woman of the Year for Assembly District 18.

Filosofía política

Price is best described in 2020 terms as a bold progressive. She is an ardent supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders for President, and knows that health care and housing are both human rights. She also knows that power concedes nothing without a struggle and that all progress depends upon "the unreasonable man." As an unapologetically proud Black woman, Price believes in the leadership of Black women to help America overcome its brutal history of racism toward Black, Brown and indigenous peoples. She believes that elected officials should be accountable to the voters and the community that they are elected to serve.
