Gregory Boyle and Homeboy Inudstries

The May/June 2011 issue of PRISM featured  “Jobs Not Jails”, an award-winning article that focused on Homeboy Industries and its impact on finding jobs and better futures for former gang members. Homeboy Industries was started by Fr. Gregory Boyle.  This is a video of a speech that Fr. Boyle gave at TedxConejo this past summer in Southern California.

Quotation from the video: “How can we achieve a compassion that stands in awe of what the poor have to carry rather than in judgment of how they carry it? . . . That’s what we want to achieve—this sense of mutuality, where we obliterate once and for all the illusion that we are separate. No us and them, just us.” – Fr. Boyle
