International Gang Awareness Week
September 19 - 25, 2021
NAGIA is proud to present the 6th annual International Gang Awareness Week (IGAW). Originally held on a single day, the event has been expanded to encompass a full week of events to coincide with the beginning of the school year.
NAGIA and its 25 member organizations from across the US and Canada are requesting that local law enforcement agencies dedicate training and outreach programs to groups in their jurisdiction. NAGIA also has presenters in Mexico, Africa and South America who will participate.
The week is designed to bring global awareness to the violent problems criminal street gangs pose to our communities. This is an excellent opportunity for local agencies to work in concert with community organizations that reach at-risk children who are susceptible to gang recruitment techniques.

New content will be added daily this week.
