BluePrint’s executive director Stephen Leafloor interviewed on CBC regarding funding slated for gang prevention.
My CBC interview on Gangs and Guns recently. Complex trauma requires creative and complex engagement that is customized for different communities. Multiyear funding and the need to build trusting relationships, with new role models, and eventually move to honest discussions around mental health, abuse, bullying, forgiveness, racism, impulse control and anger, respect, drugs and alcohol, and filling our life with creative outlets. (our "One Mics" and a spirit to discover more) Not to mention addressing poverty, the money thing related to gangs, and employment. Also lets not set up power dynamics.
