Ranchero Pandillero Community Events
At community events, the Ranchero Pandillero team works directly with neighborhood gangs to find a space that has been abandoned, to jointly rehabilitate the space by collecting garbage and painting a mural.
After the community action there is a Hip Hop party where there is music and food. All members of the colony are invited to have a healthy coexistence and promote peace.
These events seek to give a new perspective to the community regarding gangs and reintegrate youth within their own neighborhoods.
