Gang violence has been reduced in Santa Rosa over the last twenty years  that’s according to police crime statistics and the city’s violence prevention partnership. The reduction in violence is partly due to the formation of this partnership  which pairs youth with services to keep them out of trouble. Reporter Adia White talked with the partnership's community outreach specialist, Salvador Sanchez Strawbridge, about why he joined a gang in Santa Rosa during his youth and how he’s been able to turn his life around.
 
On Sept. 22, Sonoma County's Community Action Partnership gave Salvador Sanchez Strawbridge a community engagement award for his work with youth. This report is part of our ongoing partnership with radio station KBBF. It's supported by a grant from the USC-Annenberg Center for Health Journalism Impact Fund.
