IABC Los Angeles Annual Banquet

June 15, 2011 - 6 to 9 p.m.
Oviatt Penthouse, Downtown Los Angeles

Distinguished Keynote Speaker

Father Greg Boyle, Founder of Homeboy Industries


Please join IABC Los Angeles as we celebrate another year!

We are proud to have Father Greg Boyle, founder of Homeboy Industries, as keynote speaker at the 2011 Annual Banquet, June 15, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m., Oviatt Penthouse in downtown Los Angeles. The event is an opportunity for IABC-LA to celebrate the past year and to install new board members for the next year.

Father Greg, as he is known, will discuss the power of communications — the ability to reach the most hardened, to see the best in everyone, and ultimately, how he helped gang members turn their life around. He will talk about how he created a paradigm shift — convincing society to accept these individuals' pasts and to give them a chance at a better life. Founded in 1988, Homeboy Industries is the largest gang intervention program in the country, offering job training, tattoo removal and jobs to members of enemy gangs and has become a national model in its effectiveness. 

In March 2010, Father Greg released “Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion.”
 He captures his work with these gang members—the homies—in the barrio of Los Angeles in a book of amazing stories and essays. All banquet attendees will receive a signed copy of the book, as Father Greg has graciously agreed to autograph each one. More information about Homeboy available is at

IABC-LA Board Member Pamela Corante-Hansen, who is a docent for L.A. Conservancy, will provide a brief historical overview of the Oviatt, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
