Former California State Senator and human rights activist Tom Hayden met with a group to discuss his book Street Wars: Gangs and the Future of Violence, published by The New Press. In it, the author proposes ways for current and former gang members to end their involvement in violent street gangs and to find peaceful methods of involving themselves in society. The author also argues that rehabilitation is a more effective method of reforming gang members than incarceration. The audience at Tia Chucha included several former gang members including speaker Alex Sanchez, now program director for Homies Unidos, a non-profit gang violence prevention and intervention organization based in El Salvador and Los Angeles. The program was moderated by Luis Rodriguez, the author of Always Running: Gang Days in L.A., published by Touchstone. close
