On Compassion: Father Greg Boyle TED Talk

Just had this excellent TED Talk passed on to us by a member of our leadership team for Rosedale Ridge…

Father Greg Boyle is a Jesuit Priest and founder of Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles. Homeboy Industries is the largest gang intervention, rehab, and re-entry program in the USA. He is also the author of Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion.  Boyle is an acknowledged expert on gangs and serves on the U.S. Attorney General’s Defending Childhood Task Force and the National Gang Center Advisory Board as well as other justice initiatives. Fr. Boyle has many amazing stories from his work with former gang members and in this talk describes how God uses compassion and true kinship to changes lives and impact communities.
