Ask any cop. Have they ever arrested a 15-35 year old gang member that spent any day of the week at a Theatrical Performance, Play, Art Show, Museum or Music Class? The Answer, "NO." We can't simply keep arresting our way out of society's youth social problems. Safe Passage sends all children free of charge each week to plays, art classes, musicals, museums and colleges.
