Ranchero Pandillero

More Hip Hop, less violence

Our program strives to eliminate gang-related violence. Through creative outlets such as music and art, knives and weapons have been replaced for microphones and spray paint. We organize Hip Hop festivals and have created a recording studio where rival gang members can experience peaceful creativity and communication. Our graffiti painting program channels feelings into colors and shapes of self-expression. We provide role models who offer alternatives to a life of violence and crime and teach the importance of meaningful work and a peaceful existence.
