Behind the Scenes
A Public Service Announcement (PSA) is an ad that is used to inform people about an important issue, like the environment or health and safety.
The gangfree.org PSA encourages kids to make the right choice and Stay Gangfree. It tells a story about a teenage girl who is faced with an important choice: she can choose to be herself, and walk down a positive, gangfree road, or she can choose to follow the pressure into a gang lifestyle.
This is the first PSA for the Gang Alternatives Program (GAP), the organization that runs gangfree.org. The PSA stars actress Elizabeth Blanco, and was developed by some really talented people with the group Women in Film LA, who donated all of their services.
Music producer Terence Dudley (50 Cent, Mary J. Blige), musical legend Al B. Sure! and rap artist/actress Paige Hurd (Everybody Hates Chris), teamed up to to create the Gangfree theme song.
