Consider This with Father Greg Boyle

  March 13, 2024 7:00 PM

Doors Open: 6:00 PM

GENERAL ADMISSION / CONVERSATION STARTER Public Onsale: July 20, 2023 12:30 PM to March 13, 2024 6:00 PM
Join Oregon Humanities for a conversation about community, belonging, and ending violence with Father Greg Boyle, founder of Homeboy Industries, a gang intervention, rehab, and reentry program based in Los Angeles.

Father Boyle is a Jesuit priest who served as a pastor in Boyle Heights during the wave of gang-related violence that began in the 1980s and peaked in 1992, when more than one thousand people were killed in the city. While law enforcement and criminal justice authorities turned to suppression and mass incarceration to address gang violence, Boyle and members of his parish and community adopted a radical approach: treating gang members as human beings.

Today, Homeboy Industries employs and trains former gang members in a range of social enterprises and provides critical services to thousands of people each year.

This event is part of Oregon Humanities’ series on Fear and Belonging.
