A live performance that focuses on issues of gang violence has returned to Kennewick.
The free show Blood In, Blood Out is 6 p.m. Sept. 17 at the Victory Outreach Church, at 412 Vancouver St.
Art Blajos, a minister and former gang member, grew up in the streets of Los Angeles. He was in prison for 17 years, nearly all of which he spent as an assassin for a prison gang. He’s now a minister who, for the 29 years, speaks on his experiences.
The show focuses on his experiences leaving the gang life and acknowledging his faith.
Never miss a local story.
“He does it throughout the world,” said James Negron, pastor at Victory Outreach Church.
Negron hopes the play will show Tri-City youth that gang life is not glamorous.
