Berkeley Organizing Congregations for Action is a non-profit, faith-based organization of 17 member congregations representing over 10,000 Berkeley families. 


Our Mission

To train and empower leaders to become activists for positive change in schools, 

healthcare, affordable housing, community safety, and fair immigration policies. BOCA leaders help deepen relationships with public officials to achieve & uphold justice, equality, and dignity for community members. 


Gentrification, displacement, homelessness, unjust treatment of immigrants, and racism are the day-to-day experience for many Berkeley residents. BOCA is here to connect congregations in the name of social justice. Please help us achieve our goals with a donation.
