The Berkeley Optometry Class of 2022 thanks you.

The Berkeley Optometry Class of 2022 wants to extend their gratitude for all of your efforts and contributions to our group donation to the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI).

Not only did they exceed their original goal of $9,000, but they raised $12,674.17.
Every dollar from this donation was matched resulting in a grand total of $25,348.34!

This would not be possible without the support of the members and loved ones of our optometry community. We are all grateful to be part of such a strong community that is hungry for justice and change.
