STR8 UP and Gangs: The Untold Stories (2012)

These are the true life stories of thirteen men who have chosen to share their hearts, their pain, and their grief to reach at-risk youth before they become involved in gang life. This is their way to give back to their communities.  In doing so, they not only reach the youth they seek to help, but they educate the general public and empower themselves as well.



Brighter Days Ahead (2013)

This book is part of a larger research project that explores how some Indigenous men look to street gangs as ways to express their notions of masculinity. By using photovoice, the reader is able to get a visual sense of what gang lifestyle is like. From their earliest memories to where they are today, the men featured in this book take the reader on a journey through a lifetime that many of us can only imagine and may never truly understand.


Stories of Courage: A Healing Workbook (2015)

This autobiographical workbook features the healing journeys of 29 men and women who share their personal stories of recovery. Some are ex-gang members, some have been incarcerated, ALL are on a healing journey. Through healing they become responsible citizens: working, volunteering in the community, attending school, and giving back. That’s the STR8 UP way.
