Berkeley Organizing Congregations for Action (BOCA) is a non-profit, faith-based organization of 17 member congregations representing over 10,000 Berkeley families. We are a multi-ethnic, cross-cultural, inter-faith and inter-racial group of ordinary people learning to become leaders in our community by putting our faith into action.

BOCA is non-partisan and is not aligned explicitly or implicitly with any candidate or party. We do not endorse or support candidates for office.
