GANG AFFILIATIONS AND IDENTIFIERS
In Will County, there are two different Gang Nations, the People, and the Folks. In these two nations are many different factions that affiliate with the nations. With some gangs, such as the Latin Kings, representing by color remains very popular. With several others, however, wearing colors for representation is not as dominant as it once was. Currently, honoring deceased members through custom-made clothing is a popular way to represent a gang.
