James “Gork” Walker is a Violence Interrupter for the S.O.S. Crown Heights team. He grew up in Crown Heights, and is dedicated to making the neighborhood safer for youth. Walker attributes his bad decisions growing up to his lack of role models and support. Prior to being incarcerated for 14 years, Walker was shot 6 times; the first time he found a gun he was 9 years old. While in prison, Walker saw the prison population grow younger and younger; because of this he decided to become a role model for his community once he was released. Walker hopes the work that Save Our Streets does daily will result in a future with greater opportunities for young people in Crown Heights.
