MLK Day of Service 2022

Updated: Jan 17, 2022

Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Day of Service is a defining moment each year when people across the country step up to make our communities more equitable and take action. Dr. King believed that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” as he fought for systemic change.

BOSS exists to serve the most vulnerable, high need/high-risk individuals in our community - those experiencing homelessness, poverty, justice system-involvement, mental illness/disabilities, substance abuse, domestic violence, and other challenges

The annual Berkeley MLK Breakfast Celebration, now in its 11th year, brings the community together in a joyful, touching, and meaningful way.

While we work to recover from the pandemic and its tragic impact on our community, this year's MLK Breakfast will be held virtually and the focus is Health Equity and Justice.

Register here today to kick off 2022 with a morning of inspirational speakers, local youth performances, and community commitment to positive change.

On Monday, January 17, 2022, Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency will be recognized for their service to the Oakland community by Xi Gamma Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, during their 2nd annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service program. Since chartering in 1982, Xi Gamma Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated has provided stellar community service and outreach to Oakland and surrounding communities.

Join us for this virtual celebration here.


During the 9th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, Executive Director Donald Frazier gave the keynote address - Chaos or Community(see below).
