The foundation of our movement comes from
the book...THE STREETS DON'T
LOVE YOU BACK.
Our movement is striving to educate our youth about the dangers of
gangs, violence and drugs and that there are many alternatives to the
“gang bangin, thug, drug husslin” life.
Our focus is true stories of people who used to be involved in ...the
gang, thug, drug life and how living the street life has affected
their lives, the lives of others, how they have changed their life and
what they are doing now.
Our goal is that the “The Streets Don’t Love You Back” Radio Show and
the “Change” TV Reality Show be a vehicle to continually educate and
by sharing true stories of those who lived that life, we hope to
change the lives of others. Rob and I believe that through our vision
and The Streets Don’t Love You Back Movement we can and will create
change and healing for many people in our country. This is our
