Former gangbangers and addicts themselves, this remarkable panel shares their calling today to help heal other young lives. Gangs and drugs are community challenges that require community solutions. What can WE do in the Interfaith Community to help ensure responsible policies, effective practices, and healthy organizations to help Heal Hawaii?
