Background/History

This street and prison gang, whose origins date back to the late 1970s in the California Youth Authority, has ties to the Aryan Brotherhood. It exploded in membership in the 1990s. The state prison system currently recognizes the NLR as a criminal gang, which affects their treatment within correction facilities. Members of the gang are involved in the drug trade and white supremacist ideology is a strong part of the gangís character.
