    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    The Architect is a remarkable new manuscript with profound social implications. It is written by two well known former Crip gang members Craig Ross and Steve Champion. Their ground breaking work takes a unique and radical approach to addressing the systematic problems arising from gang violence. The social value of the Architect lies in its call for gang members to take full responsibility for transforming their lives and bringing peace to their communities. Ross and Champion provide a road map to gang members for social change that is both inspirational and aspirational. The authors intimately understand the ethos of gang culture. Thus they are uniquely qualified to offer pragmatic and realistic solutions .In the U.S. there are approximately 30,000 gang members with 800,000 active members. Despite the many gang prevention and intervention programmes, gang injunctions, and massive incarceration gangs will not disappear. The old philosophy of suppression and lock'em up, have failed. Ross and Champion believe it is time for a new philosophy, one of gang transformation. The Architect is the vision for this transformation.
