East Los Angeles Priest Publishes Gang-Intervention Memoir

March 17, 2010  | 

The Rev. Greg Boyle, the Jesuit priest who founded Homeboy Industries, has published a memoir about his work steering wayward youth away from gang involvement.

Boyles' "Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion" explores the activist's experiences in a literary, poetic format woking with youth after founding Homeboy Industries in 1992.

The program offers free tattoo removal and provides counseling, tutoring and employment services.
