What can educators do?
- Do not live in denial.
- Be non-judgemental.
- Learn about the gang issue.
- Treat all students equally.
- Refer gang members or associates to in-school support staff.
- Understand that gang membership happens for many reasons: multi-generational, protection, income producing, territorial, etc.
- If you are not comfortable discussing gang issues with students, refer them to someone who is.
- Train staff to understand and work with gang members, as they are members of the entire student body.
- Work with gang leaders to create “sacred ground” at school.
- Communicate with your staff about gang issues that happen on your campus and steps that are being taken to address it.
- Encourage gang involved youth to explore other options for making money, being with friends, and achieving their goals.
RIP to all young men and young women in Bridgeport who were taken from us at too young of an age. You are remembered.
