About the event
Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency (BOSS) in partnership with the Alameda County Public Defender’s Office invites you to celebrate the RISING STARS CELEBRATION OF HOPE, honoring justice-involved young people in our community who are working hard on a fresh start.
The men and women being honored have overcome traumatic experiences with domestic or community violence, family separation, homelessness, extreme poverty, incarceration, and justice system involvement – Despite it all, they are determined to rebuild their lives, attain gainful employment, and do whatever it takes to take care of themselves and their families. With distressed communities being hit hardest by two years of COVID impacts and crime rising nationwide, these honorees are incredible and important SUCCESS STORIES that need to be shared and celebrated!!
At the RISING STARS CELEBRATION OF HOPE, BOSS and ACPD will celebrate these individuals with live entertainment, special guest speakers, food, certificates of achievement from elected officials, and gift bags – all honorees will be showered with community support, respect, admiration, and love: We want them to succeed!!
The Rising Stars Silent Auction is now open. Access the full list of unique experiences here.
