Rise Up program provides new path after prison
Logan Byrnes met with Joe Gilbreath, Founder and President of Rise Up Industries, and two members, Angel Ramirez and Oscar Rodriguez, to discuss the Rise Up program for recidivists and how they seek to prevent gang activity.
Rise Up Industries is a public benefit nonprofit that is focused on Gang Prevention, Gang Intervention and Post Detention Reentry.
“RUI is correct in focusing on coordinating the efforts of the entire community in order to correct the conditions that lead our youth to believe that there are no positive alternatives to gang life. You have my full support and I wish you success in the programs you are implementing” said San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis.
