Father Greg Boyle (one of the few good Catholic clerics in the world today) is a Jesuit priest and the founder of Homeboy Industries, which is marking its 30th anniversary of witnessing to the fundamental human truth that there is no us and them, only us.
Fr. Greg is a native Angeleno and the author of the bestsellers Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion and Barking to the Choir: The Power of Radical Kinship.
Together they will share teachings on cultivating positive connections with others and personal strength through vulnerability -- and consciously creating the lives and world we want to share.
This event is taking place on the UCLA campus with proceeds supporting Homeboy Industries.
