‘Walking in Grace’ Illustrates The Radical Transformation Of Former Gang Members

On this edition of Your Call, Alison Fogg Carlson joins us to discuss Walking in Grace: Miracles in a City of Angels, a collection of stories to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Homeboy Industries, an organization that provides education, therapy, job training, and tattoo removal services to former gang members in Los Angeles.

  Homeboy Industries provides a second chance at life to those who never had a first. What can we learn from former gang members who’ve gone through radical changes?
