Tattoo Removal

The GRYD Foundation is proud of its work with Communities In Schools and the City of Los Angeles’s Office of Gang Reduction & Youth Development (GRYD Office) to launch a free tattoo removal program to help individuals with visible anti-social and/or gang-related tattoos who reside in communities with high concentrations of youth, high levels of gang violence and high percentages of families living below the poverty line.

Anonymous Gun Buyback

Led by the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Office of Gang Reduction & Youth Development (GRYD) in partnership with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the City of Los Angeles Gun Buyback initiative rewards the voluntary surrender of firearms while also engaging our communities towards a common goal of reducing gun violence.
