The Center of Addictions, Personality, and Emotion Research will be hosting a lecture that may be of interest to you. From their origins in Los Angeles to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, Juan Fogelbach will discuss distinct post-conflict conditions that facilitated the proliferation of gangs and identify some of the transnational challenges posed by the Mara Salvatrucha and Barrio 18 gangs.  Mr. Fogelbach will identify youth at-risk of joining gangs, gang activities, disassociation, and the various local efforts to combat gang activity.  Mr. Fogelbach is a researcher at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, within the Department of Homeland Security.  He received his Juris Doctorate from the University of San Diego and his Bachelors in Science in Management Economics from the University of California San Diego.
