Since our establishment over 6 years ago, the BHDC hosts a wide variety of events, some are annual and some are singular. All work to further our goal to help make Berkeley Heights the most open and welcoming community in New Jersey.
Annual MLK Jr Day of Service
The BHDC hosted our 6th Annual celebration and opportunity to serve our community. We reflected on the impact of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on our society and heard from some of our own local volunteers. While we cannot join together to volunteer in person, below find a list of local volunteer opportunities. MLK Jr Day of Service is a "day ON", not a "day off", so we encourage everyone to find a way to make an impact. These opportunities remain available after the online community event.
The BHDC hopes to once again host this as an "in-person" event in 2022.
Black History Month
The BHDC has celebrated Black History Month in a variety of ways - from in person events to online celebrations and resources.
Women's Heritage Month
In 2018, the BHDC created a "Woman of the Week" (WOW) series in honor of the women who are driving change, blazing trails and nurturing society. In the spirit of community, we wanted to honor the women right here in Berkeley Heights who are impacting the world in their own way for the remaining weeks of Women’s History Month.
The BHDC brought back the series in 2021, selecting four more inspiring women who live or work in Berkeley Heights.
The BHDC continues to host and partner with other groups to create opportunities that honor and embrace the diverse cultures and perspectives within Berkeley Heights. Our goal is to spread awareness and inclusion.
