What Fr. Greg Boyle, SJ, Wants to Tell the California Jobs Task Force

Play
Read more
When California Governor Gavin Newsom wanted to assemble a task force on business and jobs recovery for the state, he turned to some usual suspects: Tim Cook of Apple, Bob Iger of Disney and former fed chair Janet Yellen, among others. But right toward the top of the alphabetical list of 80 some-odd prominent Californians is a Jesuit priest and today's guest Fr. Greg Boyle, SJ, the founder of Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles.

If you’re not familiar with Homeboy’s work of empowerment and kinship with former gang members, you really have to pick up copies of Fr. Greg’s two memoirs, which are both spiritual instant classics: "Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion" and "Barking to the Choir: The Power of Radical Kinship."

Host Mike Jordan Laskey asks Fr. Greg about what messages he wants to bring to the governor’s task force, and how he and Homeboy have been navigating this crazy time when their in-person ministry of compassion has been shaken up.

The Quarantine Tapes 039: Father Greg Boyle

Play
Read more

Today on episode 039 of The Quarantine Tapes, Paul Holdengräber is joined by Father Greg Boyle. They discuss the importance of kinship and an equity-based economy.

Gregory Boyle is the founder of Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles, California, the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation, and re-entry program in the world.

A Jesuit priest, from 1986 to 1992 Father Boyle served as pastor of Dolores Mission Church, then the poorest Catholic parish in Los Angeles that also had the highest concentration of gang activity in the city. 

Father Boyle witnessed the devastating impact of gang violence on his community during the so-called “decade of death” that began in the late 1980s and peaked at 1,000 gang-related killings in 1992. In the face of law enforcement tactics, and criminal justice policies of suppression, and mass incarceration as the means to end gang violence, Father Boyle, and his parish and community members adopted what was a radical approach at the time: Treat gang members as human beings. In 1988 they started what would eventually become Homeboy Industries, which employs and trains former gang members in a range of social enterprises, as well as provides critical services to thousands of men and women who walk through its doors every year seeking a better life. 

Father Boyle is the author of the 2010 New York Times-bestseller Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion. His new book, Barking to the Choir: The Power of Radical Kinship, was published in 2017. 

He has received the California Peace Prize and been inducted into the California Hall of Fame. In 2014, President Obama named Father Boyle a Champion of Change. He received the University of Notre Dame’s 2017 Laetare Medal, the oldest honor given to American Catholics.
