Homeboy Joy Ride (3:07)
Home Boy Industries in East L.A. is the living model of community and transformation. It is the starting point on a joy ride that takes people suffering from addiction, isolation, and marginalization to a "heaven on earth." This is where individuals come together to heal themselves and each other and rebuild their communities by finding meaning and purpose.
The whole community is on a Joy Ride - a Homeboy Joy Ride.
Father Greg Boyle, S.J., founder of the community reminds us, "We want to create a community of tenderness because the highest form of spiritual maturity is tenderness so if love is the answer community is the context."

Bill reports on the hypocrisy of "justice for all" in a society where billions are squandered for a war born in fraud while the poor are pushed aside. He draws particular attention to the failing legacy of Gideon vs. Wainwright, the landmark Supreme ruling that established the constitutional right of criminal defendants to legal representation, even if they can't afford it. Turns out true justice -- not just the word that comes from our lips when we recite the Pledge of Allegiance -- is still unaffordable for those who need it most. Published on Mar 29, 2013
