Father Greg Boyle: Welcoming the Unwelcome -  - Podcast-Items - Life Stories

In this episode of The Thread, you’ll meet Father Greg Boyle who, inspired by his friend Cesar Chavez’ lifelong commitment to non-violence, has helped hundreds of thousands of young people transform their lives through compassion and unconditional love. In the days of rioting that followed the 1992 acquittal of the Los Angeles police officers who brutally beat Rodney King, Father Boyle founded Homeboy Bakery, a not-for-profit business that gave gang members an opportunity to find employment. More than thirty years later, Homeboy Industries is now the largest gang rehabilitation program in the world, offering an "exit ramp" for more than 10,000 men and women a year.
