The power of radical kinship. Thanks Father Greg for the #WednesdayWisdom!

Barking to the Choir made an appearance on NBC’s @todayshow this morning! Many thanks to NYT bestselling author Ann Patchett for selecting Father Greg’s book as her top nonfiction pick for the fall and for spreading our message of hope and compassion.

“I registered to vote as soon as I discharged parole, because under condition of my parole, I wasn’t allowed to register to vote… I feel like I owe it to the generations of people before me who sacrificed and paid the price for this generation and for my generation and the generations coming after me to vote. For me, it’s sort of like paving the way— paying it forward.” - Lami J. Glenn, Homeboy Industries Alumnus and Current Navigator

Today, we are especially grateful for our four on-staff therapists and 40 volunteer licensed clinicians who served over 160 of our clients in just this last month. Because of them, it is not uncommon to hear the words “I’m going to therapy” and to seek healing together here at Homeboy Industries. #WorldMentalHealthDay

Happy #WorldSmileDay! We hope this Friday and the weekend ahead bring you so many reasons to smile. Tag someone below who has you smiling today!

When we dare to get close enough, we realize there’s no “us” and “them” — there’s just us. #WednesdayWisdom

Today is #NationalVoterRegistrationDay! The majority of our folks have worked hard to transform their lives, serve their sentences, and become contributing members of our society, but many of them have never even thought of voting as a right they have. We hosted a voter drive today to mobilize these men and women and to remember that we all have a part in ensuring everyone has the opportunity to make their voice heard this November. #MidtermsOnMyTerms #RockTheVote
