Update: Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency


Exactly 3 months after the announcement that 20% of Attention Passengers: Adventures on Public Transportation profits (or a lump sum out of my pocket if Attention Passengers didn’t turn a profit) would be donated to Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency, it’s time to give!


Remember, BOSS helps people find affordable housing and living wage jobs through their training programs, shelters, and social services. Primarily operating out of the East Bay in places like Berkeley, Oakland, and Hayward, they aim to eliminate mass homelessness, mass incarceration, and community violence.


As someone who has met people on public transportation in need of this exact type of help, I truly wish the best for BOSS and their pursuit of their goals. If you would like to contribute to the cause, you can donate here.
