Salt Lake City, UT – Today's story is from Francisco Cruz who is 17 years old and attends school in Salt Lake City. He's been involved in a gang for several years and struggled with getting out of the gang after his mom and sister were shot. For our continuing series Youth Waves, Francisco interviews friends who are also involved in gangs, and his mother, sister.
Today's story came to us from the City Academy Charter School's radio class. All of our youth commentaries can be found on the Youth Waves link at kuer.org. I'm Jenny Brundin, KUER News.
