Hearts and Hands: Creating Community in Violent Times
Hearts and Hands deals with many of the difficult issues addressed in Luis Rodríguez’s memoir of gang life, Always Running, but with a focus on healing through community building. Empowered by his experiences as a peacemaker with gangs in Los Angeles and Chicago, Rodríguez offers a unique book of change. He makes concrete suggestions, shows how we can create nonviolent opportunities for youth today, and redirects kids into productive and satisfying lives. And he warns that we sacrifice community values for material gain when we incarcerate or marginalize people already on the edge of society. His interest in dissolving gang influence on black and latino kids is personal as well as societal; his son, to whom he dedicates Hearts and Hands, is currently serving a prison sentence for gang-related activity. With anecdotes, interviews, and time-tested guidelines, Hearts and Hands makes a powerful argument for building and supporting community life.

Review: Hearts and Hands: Creating Community in Violent TimesUser Review - Goodreads
compelling, interesting, insightful, lovely. full of wonderful things, and also very sad. but in the end, full of hope and inspiration. could not follow the organizational structure of the book, but that might just be where i am right now-- maybe it's not a book to read intermittently on the bus.
