Lacey History Month – Gangs

June 26th, 2015 by Ken

November 11, 1993 – More than a thousand people jammed the St. Martin’s Pavilion to protest the killing of a 13-year old Lacey boy in an apparent gang killing.   Police, school, city and social leaders were on hand to listen and respond.   From that meeting came the creation of  TOGETHER as an anti-gang, anti-violence organization.   As the gang threat declined over the years, Together morphed into other forms of community action and is still active today.
