No COLORS sounds an alarm of a national gang crisis that will alert you to the need to react, now. No COLORS is an inspiring direction finder and a guide. It gives citizens, community and business leaders, elected and appointed officials, educators and clergy clear instructions on best practices across America and Canada to help municipalities stand against gangs and youth violence. Ultimately, this book, and the significant research and effort on which it is based, represents the many voices and experiences, including their own, that Ramey and Kipper have brought together to share with you. At the very least it will inform you. At best it will enlighten you. And if you are open to its compelling message, our hope for you and for your community is that it will move you to action.
