Summer Field Trip: Homeboy Industries

What: CARLDIG-S field trip to Homeboy Industries
When:   Friday, July 18, 2014
Where:  Homeboy Industries, 130 Bruno St., Los Angeles, CA 90012 
Time:    10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

On Friday, July 18th, CARLDIG-S will be visiting  Homeboy Industries for a tour of the facilities, a discussion about their library project, and lunch at the Homegirl Cafe.

Homeboy Industries helps formerly gang involved men and women and the previously incarcerated, by offering hope, training and job skills. Their goal is to help former gang members redirect their lives and become contributing members of their families and community. Homeboy Industries is the largest gang intervention program in the nation and has become a model for other organizations and cities.

With the goal of bringing university level education to marginalized urban populations, Homeboy Industries is planning to open a library. Lizette Guerra, Archivist and Librarian at the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center, will talk about the development of the Homeboy Industries Library following the tour.

Participation in this event is open and free to CARL members. Lunch will be a Dutch treat.

Registration is limited to 20 attendants, and space is expected to fill up quickly. Don't hesitate!
