A North Richmond, California street gang that originally began as a neighborhood baseball team in the 1980s. At its peak, Project Trojans had an estimated 300 members and controlled the cocaine, heroin, and meth trade in North Richmond. After a significant increase in violent crime in the 2000s, the feds cracked down, resulting in the formation of new gangs with different names (e.g., Swerve Team).
"The Project Trojans have controlled much of the drug trafficking within North Richmond for decades and have been the source -- directly or indirectly -- for much of the violence plaguing the community." San Francisco Chronicle, March 14, 2006
