Drugs, gangs, prostitution, and crime. These are the realities that have plagued the Stop 6 neighborhood of Fort Worth for decades. However, for Dante, Quinton, and Franklin, Stop 6 was home. Home meant sleeping at your friends house, playing football in the streets, learning what it means to be a man from your brothers, and not falling prey to the vices of the community. They learned that being a product of your environment is up to interpretation. For them, it meant "World Wide P", a band of brothers that uplifted each other and applied 'the ultimate peer pressure, in a positive way". It meant coming back to the community that raised them, and teaching the men of their community to rise up and not fall victim to societal stereotypes. In a community rich in history and decorated with culture, these men chose to come back and be the impact the neighborhood needed; to blur the racial lines and bring healing to a hurting city. From these desires Community Frontline was born, and it's their story we tell.
