Over the course of months, I've seen friendships erode and in some cases turn to outright aggression over gang involvement, affiliation, or lack thereof. I've also seen relationships preserve. We want to create space for the discussion to be held.
I want to work with active gang members to solve this problem. We will need peer buy-in, and a safe container to hold these discussions in. Harper High School will play an integral role in the mediation process.
