This is a film you may want to see.  It’s not a Christian film  but it does show something of what it’s like to be out on the streets interrupting violence.  The film shows one year in the life of several Ceasefire violence interrupters, including the challenges, frustrations, and joys of the work. Information on the film can be found at:

Crossfire is in the process of beginning some Gangs Anonymous groups. if you’re trrying to deal with gang-related issues and could use some help in sorting through things, Gangs Anonymous may be able to help. The actual places that we will meet is dependent on the numbers of guys wanting to attend in various neighborhoods and the presence of someone to lead the groups. Groups will be available for men or women. If you are interested in being part of Gangs Anonymous in either of those capacities, please let us know by calling me at 773.294.8849 or e-mailing me at:
