The Homeboy Industries "Every Angeleno Counts" 5K is an opportunity for us to walk, run and stand with thousands of former gang-members whose lives are being completely transformed. Every Angeleno Counts can help dispel the myth that some lives matter less than others.
Each year over 12,000 former gang members from across Los Angeles come through Homeboy Industries’ doors in an effort to make a positive change. They are welcomed into a community of mutual kinship, love, and a wide variety of services ranging from tattoo removal to anger management and parenting classes. Full-time employment is offered for more than 200 men and women at a time through an 18-month program that helps them re-identify who they are in the world, offers job training so they can move on from Homeboy Industries and become contributing members of the community - knowing they count.
Please walk, run, and stand on the margins and together we will watch the margins be erased.
For more information about HOMEBOY INDUSTRIES:
Homeboy Industries provides hope, training and support to formerly gang-involved and recently incarcerated men and women, allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community. All proceeds from the 5K event provide jobs, training and free services such as tattoo removal, mental health services, case management and legal services to our trainees.
