Jesuit Father Gregory J. Boyle is the founder and executive director of Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles, Calif. From 1986 to 1992, Father Boyle served as pastor of Dolores Mission Church in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of East Los Angeles, then the poorest Catholic parish in the city, located between two large public housing projects and the territories of numerous gangs. Father Boyle and parish and community members started what would eventually become Homeboy Industries, which is now the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation, and re-entry program in the world. Homeboy trains and employs former gang members in a range of social enterprises, as well as providing critical services to over 12,000 people who walk through its doors every year seeking a better life. Father Boyle is the author of the 2010 New York Times bestselling book Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion. He received the California Peace Prize and was inducted into the California Hall of Fame. In 2014, the White House named him a "Champion of Change" for his work to facilitate employment opportunities for individuals formerly involved in the justice system. He recently received the 2016 Humanitarian of the Year award from the James Beard Foundation, a national culinary arts organization.
