Trigger warning: this episode has vivid references to physical violence.In this episode, we talk with a prior youth in the juvenile justice system about how the cycle of violence started in his own life and what it took him to break it and become a peacemaker for himself, his family, and his community. Our guest, Iran was a foster child in the custody of DCF in his childhood who then immersed himself in to the violent street culture of gang membership and prison though his twenties. In the1990’s he began to repurpose himself to helping youth avoid his childhood path and in the early 2000’s he began leading organizations working to reduce violence across the State of Connecticut. He has worked in the program management, gang prevention, youth outreach, youth engagement and support field for 30 years. He is an expert in Gang Prevention and Mediation and provides training to many groups serving youth who are deemed in risk. Working in partnership with the Hartford Connecticut Police Department in June of 2015 Iran was “Badged” by the department to serve as a community/law enforcement partner. In this role Iran is to serve as an intermediary in city wide crisis situations under President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper Initiative.In 2016 he Founded the Peace Center of Connecticut where he serves as President/CEO.

Recipient of the 2012 Milton Thrasher Award for Superior Excellence in Gang Prevention, he actively sought to form and foster collaborative relationships with agencies and service providers outside of his department in an effort to comprehensively combat the issue of human trafficking. Joins us in a courageous and candid conversation about how his passion for fighting human trafficking motivated the creation of the non-profit organization called The JUST ASK Prevention Project. The JUST ASK Prevention Project works to educate our youth and adults about the signs of human trafficking to keep our teenagers safe. We know that a well informed public will decrease the ability of trackers to operate and inspire victims and survivors to come forward and Just Ask for help.

Kevin O’Neill‘s fascinating book Secure the Soul: Christian Piety and Gang Prevention in Guatemala (University of California Press, 2015) traces the efforts of multi-million dollar programs aimed at state security through gang prevention in Guatemala. O’Neill is most interested in the ways that Christianity and ideas about piety, salvation, redemption, and transformation guide and shape a variety of programs in prisons, rehabilitation centers, and, perhaps surprisingly, reality television and call centers. This is a finely hewn multi-sited ethnography as well as a moving account of the life of a single former gang member. At its core is a tension between the critique of programs that range from the absurd to the tragic, and a recognition that without those programs, former gang members in Guatemala would be relegated to the barest of bare lives.
