Gangs: It's Your Life
The 'Gangs' series is a powerful and provocative look at gangs and gang violence from the inside. This program features former gang members--some now incarcerated, others now acting directors of innovative youth programs--as they candidly share with us their painful experiences. They openly discuss the initial draw to join a gang at an early age, and the subsequent horrors they witnessed as a necessary part of gang life.
This program debunks the myths that many have when it comes to gangs, and gives a sobering view of the reality of what you are signing up for when you do join a gang. Also discussed are alternatives to gang life, things that young people can participate in that can offer them the sense of community and personal power that they are ultimately seeking.
