This night was just for the Homegirls: The Women of Homeboy Industries.
Homeboy Industries provides hope, training, and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community.
We heard first-hand from the Homegirls about the specific struggles women face trying to reenter the world and what stands in their way of leading “normal” lives.
We gathered, engaged, connected, brainstormed, created and offered ourselves toward helping change the trajectory of these brave women.
It was a beautiful evening of radical kinship.
