Stories of Hope, Resilience and Life After Gangs
Why do people join gangs? Once entrenched in a life of crime with its realities of incarceration, addiction, power, and money, is it possible to ever walk away?
In Redemption, Anne Mahon, author of The Lucky Ones (2013), recounts ten first-person life stories from ex-gang members that enlighten, surprise and inspire as they share their thoughts on topics such as peace, joy, forgiveness, and hope. Their accounts reveal the reality of living as a marginalized person, and challenge preconceived notions in this illuminating look at the individuals behind the crime statistics.
