The Problem

William Morales won a BRICK Award in 1999 for his work as Director of the Egleston Square Youth Center in Roxbury, MA. A former gang member whose brother was killed by police, William launched youth & police in partnership to improve relations between local youth and police officers. His efforts led to safer neighborhoods and expanded opportunities for young people – including participants who have become police officers themselves.
