homeboy industries

(Posted December 15, 2010)

I went to a wonderful event last night with some of my housemates to hear Father Greg Boyle, a Jesuit, speak about his work in L.A. with Homeboy Industries.  He just wrote a book called Tattoos on the Heart, all about his work with gang members and gang intervention programs over the past 25 years.  He had some amazing things to say about solidarity and kinship; definitely worth a read!
