The honorees of the Marcus Foster Education Institute (MFEI) 100 of the 100th were celebrated on March 31, 2023 for the trailblazing work they have done and continue to do in the space of education equity, advocacy and youth development.  These individuals work across various industries serving communities and they are committed to the well-being and progress of students and families from historically marginalized communities. They are leaders whose volunteer and professional undertakings embody Dr. Foster’s powerful practices.

This event was also to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Dr. Foster’s birth, and the 50 years of MFEI’s service to the Oakland Unified School District and the broader community. MFEI’s 50th Anniversary Gala will be October 28, 2023 at the Scottish Rite Center where the theme is “Back to the Future: Where We Are. Where We’re Going. Where it All Began.”
