Private Project

"2.0.G. Heroes. Soldiers. Boricuas."

The oldest Latino Gang in Pennsylvania. The 20G were not a gang but protectors, defenders and for that suffered beatings by the police and many lost their lives in battle against other gangs.

Puerto Ricans were forced by United States policy to come to this country for jobs. After more than 100 years Puerto Ricans are still treated like 2nd class citizens with less rights than any other American group in the nation. In Philadelphia, the birthplace of the nation, Puerto Ricans continue to suffer; they are the 2nd poorest community for children in the nation; they have the one of the highest drop out rates in the nation and make up 20% of the prison population of Pennsylvania.

This is the most relevant movie in American today.
