Research Has Shown a Drastic Increase in Gangs Across America in the Last Several Years.  Our Center Focuses on Strategies to Reduce Gangs Within Communities Through Training, Strategic Planning and Youth Prevention.

Our Methods Are Based on Research and Evaluation with Proven Results.

The case study of “No COLORS” is centered on documented research that America is losing its fight to control its domestic gang issue.  While traditional approaches that centered around intelligence gathering and enforcement are noble and necessary, they have not proven to be effective in the overall reduction of the problem.

No COLORS is a call to better understand that gangs are well beyond the issue of being a simple law enforcement problem.  Gangs have become a deep rooted cultural and community issue.  No COLORS will take you on a journey of proven solutions to a silent insurgency that has become “America’s Nightmare.”

The National Gang Reduction Center® is a Division of The National Center for the Prevention of Community Violence.

“Sadly, community violence is “the norm” within the African American community…, as a Black woman, I am not immune. I have spent my entire career in television, radio and community engagement bringing awareness of the harmful impacts of violence and mistreatment of people – particularly those of color. That is why I proudly serve as a board member of NCPCV, an organization that is about action! NCPCV has created evidence-based, proven programs to stop the violence, particularly as it relates to bullying, gangs, and police interaction with the community. The staff and board members work hard to stop the violence!”
