Community activism takes on a new approach with a movement in Portland, Oregon to stem the tide of gang violence when former gang members come together with a purpose.
After a rash of gang-related shootings, two friends organize a picnic and bike ride to raise awareness about what their communities are facing. We see a portrait of a community grappling with gentrification and racism… far from the stereotype of a bicycle-friendly city of young creative professionals, Portland presents to the world.
How does gentrification affect gang violence? What programs exist to reduce gang violence? What can people do to take matters into their own hands and how can a community overcome gang violence as it faces change?
