Knife Crime Awareness & Gang Prevention Free Books

Gun and Knife crime has become an epidemic that is a threat to the lives of all young people. 

2020 Rising believes that local communities are in desperate need of resources to help understanding and combat the crisis of youth crime. 

Our two publications, "Getting to Grips with Gangs' and "Getting Real with Guns and Knives" is a resource that takes an in depth look at youth crime and aims to assist educators, parents, young people and the wider community in combatting this crisis. The books are written by Letise Sampson, who himself grew up in inner city London and has worked within the education sector for the last ten years with parents, teachers, police, community members and youths themselves.

We want to make the book available for FREE for every person who needs it, particularly in the country’s most vulnerable areas.  Support us in helping to ensure that these books can be distributed to schools, institutions, communities and individuals across the country to continue to raise awareness and help tackle gang violence and youth crime. From this foundation it will lead on to knife and gun crime prevention measures, including how to empower young people to stay safe and make better choices.

We will make sure that both hard copies and ebook versions of the books will be made available to ensure that there is no barrier to receiving the valuable information from the books.  

Gun and Knife crime is a silent epidemic on the inner-city streets of the UK and we at 2020 Rising want you to join us in the fight to try to find a cure.  

2020 Rising is a programme that combines workshops, training programmes, consultations, lectures, life coaching and resources to tackles some of the toughest subjects in the UK today including youth street gangs, gun and knife crime and illegal drugs. We are committed to raising real awareness, engaging with all members of afflicted communities and then taking positive action which will actually have a chance of working.
