On May 29 – 31, 2018 at the Saskatoon Inn & Conference Centre,  STR8 UP Inc. is hosting a forum with the intention of developing a collaborative, prevention and intervention-based provincial gang strategy.

The Forum will be a collaborative endeavour, in which ideas and views can be freely exchanged to generate a local community-based strategy on gangs.  Participants will receive relevant overviews, exchange critical information and can respond to personal research questions on the issue of gangs and gang activities.  They will also, network with different agencies, organizations, communities, communicating what has been effective and what has not.

We expect up to eighty participants from different communities and agencies from across Saskatchewan in attendance.

Outcomes

The purpose of the forum is to begin to construct a Saskatchewan specific definition of street gangs through the use of a typology framework to address the root causes of street gang involvement, limiting the movement of individuals, groups, or cliques to increased levels of violence related to street economies.

Upon the conclusion of the forum, community engagement activities will be designed for further community collaboration.  A final report will be complied and submitted by August 31, 2018 to the participants of the forum as well as the Federal government and the Government of Saskatchewan to determine the development of a provincial gang strategy.
