BOSS Black August Block Party Fundraiser

Annual Event Hosted by BOSS Bay Area

The BOSS Black August community celebration, block party, and fundraiser launched August 2021 to support BOSS’ Reentry & Neighborhood Safety programs – health, housing, employment and other resources for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities in areas that are disproportionately affected by racially biased policies and systemic inequities - East, West, and Downtown Oakland. The Black August celebration showcases the art, entrepreneurship, activism, voice, and achievements of our community!

Please don't miss the 2023 BOSS Black August Celebration!

At its inaugural Black August Block Party in August 2021, BOSS unveiled 'The Arc of Liberation' mural - a culmination of art, culture, and political education honoring the heroes and fighters whose shoulders we stand on and whose activism we continue today. Public art inspires and tells a story - it brings the community together! At the 2023 event, we are unveiling a limited edition hoodie for sale with The Arc of Liberation artwork - so you can wear your history with PRIDE!
