A panel discussion on female gang diversion featuring a short fill presentation of "Gang Girl: A Mother's Journey to Save Her Daughter."

Join us for our Women's History Month "Saving Our Girls" Forum next Friday, March 27th, 2015, at 7:30 a.m., as this forum features a panel discussion on the problem of girl gangs in the city of Los Angeles, and how our society dismisses the gender factor in this violent and problematic cultural phenomenon.

This will be an exciting discussion of involved panelists who've taken on this issue, over the course of their busy lives, in offering solution based remedies to this latent social problem.

Our Newsmakers will be:

Producer/Photographer/Executive Director,

Developer/CEO, Urban Design Center
Sherri Franklin,

Guest Forum Moderator,

This forum discussion will be introduced by a 30 minute film clip from a feature documentary produced by Ms. Valerie Goodloe, based on her real life experience in trying to save her own daughter from this girl gang life.
