Screening of "Clever" with Gerardo Lopez
Sep 8, 2018
Join TEDxMileHigh Speaker Gerardo Lopez and Homies Unidos, filmmaker Alan Dominguez and a Denver-based gang intervention and prevention program to explore how young people are pulled into gangs and the understand the courage required to leave gang life.
We will watch the short film, Clever, as it follows former gang member Gerardo Lopez’s story and work as he works to prevent and intervene with youth at-risk of joining a gang. Gerardo and youth leaders from his organization will take audience questions and share more of their stories and experiences of building a life outside of gang life.
Following the film and Q&A, join Gerardo and youth from Homies Unidos for a photo scavenger hunt of the art throughout the Crush Mural Festival in the RiNo Arts District to connect with the young people forging their own courageous paths.
