 Our movement is striving to educate the youth about the dangers of gangs, drugs, violence and abuse and that there are many alternatives to the gang bangin, thug, drug, husslin, street life. Our focus is educating through true stories of people who used to be involved in the gang, thug, drug, violent, abusive street life and how living/surviving the street life has affected their lives, the lives of others, how they have changed their life and what they are doing now. Our goal is that the “The Streets Don’t Love You Back” Radio Show, the “Change Reality Show", the "Keep It Real Show" and our Speaking Engagements be a vehicle to continually educate by sharing true stories of those who lived that life. We hope to change the lives of others.Rob and I believe that through our vision and The Streets Don’t Love You Back Movement we can and will create change and healing for many people in our country. This is our Mission.
