About

Overview

This essential guide discusses the very real threat to young people by gangs in the United States and the perpetuation of those gangs due to poverty, disenfranchisement, and a harsh punitive system. The book details the disproportionate treatment of black and brown youth, the uptick in violent white gangs, and the need for dealing with gangs in a more measured way. It provides resources on how to avoid gangs and keep friends out of them.
