Getting Involved Against Gangs

New approaches to stop gang activity are being utilized. Check out Criminal Justice website for ideas. From their site: Cities across the country are trying alternative approaches to stem gang violence - from hiring former gangbangers to mediate disputes to offering life coaches and job training - and they're working.

In St. Louis, a program called Aim4Peace is borrowing a page from Chicago's Ceasefire, a non-profit initiative that seeks to treat violence like an epidemic and stem its spread through intervention at critical moments.

I started for looking how to get involved with stopping gang activity when I was researching for my latest release, Fear No Evil . Everyone can learn a way to get stop the violence.
