No Colors is a Warning
No community wants to admit it has a gang problem. Yet that denial and the unwillingness to address youth violence as a community problem will have tragic consequences.
If your community does not address the crisis, the epidemic of youth violence will erode your city or town with a potential that is both frightening and tragic. We cannot wait on government to solve this problem. We must approach the solution as a unified community.
