As Managing Director for the Movement for Black Power, a DC based organization dedicated to the establishment of justice, liberation and power for Black people in America and abroad, he is tasked with developing sustainable programs that address education, housing, employment, among other things within the Black community.

Saber serves as a board director of The Tubman House, a community organization focusing on community development and re-entry of persons formerly incarcerated in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Eliham Girl Child Charity House, a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping young girls in school and teaching them sewing and agricultural skills.
