It has been four years since history teacher Joe Carmona brought together members of different gangs from the neighborhoods surrounding Stevenson Junior High School and placed them in a special homeroom so they could get to know one another. What grew out of that effort was the Barrio Peace Warriors, a group that has continued its message of peace despite an order last year preventing Carmona from holding the class at school. The group is made up of about 50 teen-agers representing 19 gangs.
