Father Greg Boyle, Founder of Homeboy Industries, the world’s largest rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world, will discuss the power of extending love and compassion to our returning citizens. Formerly incarcerated people face tremendous obstacles upon returning home. Father Greg will discuss how non-profit organizations provide critical support to this community and the exquisite mutuality that happens when tenderness is the connective tissue, the foundational basis for how a non-profit organization choses to provide services and walk alongside the marginalized. Key learnings include:
How can non-profits be strong partners to formerly incarcerated people.
What are the barriers (collateral consequences) that system-impacted individuals face that stand in the way of re-entry.
Tenderness reflects the foundational notion that there is no us and them, only us.
