Additionally, we will address what function the gang serves in satisfying the psychological and social needs of their members. In order to continue to build health equity the training will address the complex relationship between street gangs, criminal justice, drugs, addiction, violence, health problems, family issues, and access to culturally competent services.

Outcome Objectives (participants will):
