Announcing Our Faith & Justice Breakfast Keynote Speaker

Our nineteenth annual Faith & Justice Breakfast is quickly approaching! People of all faiths, or lack thereof, are invited to join us on the morning of Wednesday, August 23rd at Temple Beth Abraham in Oakland.

EBHO is honored to announce two of our speakers, Rev. Marvin K. White, who will deliver an opening prayer, and Rev. Jeremy McCants, who is our keynote speaker. Rev. White and Rev. McCants have devoted their lives to extending support and inspiring hope for our neighbors across the East Bay, and we are excited to have them join us to share their light and wisdom.

Our inspiring speakers have been chosen in line with the theme of this year’s Breakfast: Breaking Bread, Branching Out. At this year’s Breakfast, we will connect with our roots, be they in a faith community or lack thereof, then connect with our neighbors and invite them into the fight for housing justice.
