Join the Center for Black Cultural and Student Affairs and the Department of Public Safety as we screen the documentary "License to Operate".
The neighborhoods of L.A. have been trapped in a cycle of poverty and violence, but this model of gang intervention has proven effective. Thanks, in part, to this "change from within" approach of intervention murder rates in Los Angeles have been on a steady decline, recently hitting a 20-year low. However, there is much work yet to be done, and balancing the battle between success and failure is something that is constantly being put to the test.
Following the screening there will be a Q&A featuring various indivudals involved with the documentary as well the Department of Public Saftey.
