The city of Oakland is divided over whether gang injunctions will help reduce a long-standing problem of street violence.  Here we report on a grassroots campaign, aiming to stop what many activists say is a problematic policy of racial profiling, that won’t help make the community any safer.

This program is reader supported, thanks to spot.us and is part of our investigation into how and whether gang injunctions effectively fight crime.
