Notre Dame de Namur University Hosts Gang Prevention Panel

Belmont, CA, November 10, 2011—Notre Dame de Namur University’s Chapter of Psi Chi, a psychology honor society, will host “Gang Awareness in Our Communities,” a speaker panel for gang prevention, on November 16 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Ralston Hall Mansion.

The event brings former gang members and other professionals together to discuss techniques for dealing with issues of preventing gang-related activities in the community. Former gang members will provide their accounts of how they became involved in gangs and how they survived getting out. Professionals will also provide therapeutic techniques to help handle the issues a gang brings to a community.

A small donation of $5 per person is encouraged to help support similar future events. Students with an ID are free. The Ralston Hall Mansion is located on NDNU’s campus at 1500 Ralston Avenue in Belmont.
