2019 Caucus Highlights

The People We Throw Away - INCLUSION: A Path Towards Health Equity?

Father Gregory J. Boyle, SJ
Founder, Homeboy Industries – Los Angeles
Jesuit Priest

Father Gregory Boyle is a Jesuit Priest and the founder of Homeboy Industries, the largest gang-intervention, rehabilitation, and re-entry program in the world. Beginning in 1986, the “decade of death” in Los Angeles ravaged the city, with over 1,000 killings each year. 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, along with parish and community members, adopted what was a radical approach at the time: treat gang members as human beings.
