A Day On, Not a Day Off

The Bonner Leaders program honors the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. by serving in the Gardens at Lake Merritt in Oakland 

Instead of taking the day off, the Bonner Leaders, alongside members of the Transfer Service Community, Oakland community, and other local social justice organizations, went to work on January, 20th, 2014. This date is a national day of service, in which thousands of volunteers and community organizers come together to honor the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. by joining together their local communities to act.

The Bonner Leaders started the day bright and early, and after a short orientation to the Gardens at Lake Merritt in Oakland, CA small teams partnered up to work in various areas of the garden. Some of the work included landscaping in the Bonsai Garden, weeding, planting, and harvesting in the Community and Palm Gardens.

At the conclusion of the day of work, a quick look around showed rejuvinated gardens. The Bonner Leaders gathered together to reflect on the systemic changes Dr. King worked for and reflected the importance of community and action to see those ends. There was a moment of reflection for the unrecognized leaders of social movements and an individual's role in larger movments. With the guidance and help of local experts, the Bonner Leaders and many other volunteers from the local community helped to improve the health and beauty of the Gardens at Lake Merritt. 

Thank you to all of those that made this day of service possible, including all of the dedicated volunteers and organizers of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service.

Miranda Landfield

My name is Miranda Landfield and I am currently a Bonner leader with the UC Berkeley Public Service Center and a representative for the organization The Conscious Network, which is sponsored by the PSC. I am a senior here at Cal, a Psychology major and Spanish minor. For my Bonner position, I am working with HS youth on preventing underage alcohol and substance abuse in their community and empowering leadership capacity and preparing them for college. I am really enthused about The Conscious Network, a movement that started on campus about a year ago that creates spaces for people to come together and be real and authentic with one another. It’s a supportive community designed to empower people in becoming happier and more fulfilled in their lives. In my free time I play soccer and I play the guitar and sing.

Julie

Julie Ann Nepomuceno


Julie Ann Nepomuceno is a junior pursuing a major in architecture and minors in global poverty and city planning. Her passions for the built environment and social justice have led her to explore the issue of homelessness with Alternative Breaks for the past two years as a participant and trip leader and now with Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency (BOSS), a Berkeley-based program helping 1,500+ homeless families and individuals to achieve greater socioeconomic self-sufficiency, as a Social Justice intern working with their Community Organizing Team.

Lara Baggio is a second year at UC Berkeley working to be an intended business administration major and she would love for you to hear a little bit about herself and the organization that has become a part of her life: C.R.E.A.T.E. Lara has been involved with bringing arts to the community since her arrival to the university, and she is planning on doing so throughout her life. She strongly feels that being exposed to art and knowing the power of creativity can impact one’s view of the world, as it continuously proves to do so for her. The knowledge that art programs are being cut left and right in our schools influenced her to fully support C.R.E.A.T.E’s ability to bring passionate artists to help elementary and middle school children experience the beauty of art and the perspective it brings. Our role in the community can truly make a difference.
