SLEE 2014 Kick-off!
We are very excited to announce the 8th Annual Strengthening Local Economies Everywhere (SLEE) dinner. Every year dozens of volunteers help organize this important awareness-raising event for CAGJ. We bring together over 300 farmers, food workers and activists for a dinner featuring the Pacific Northwest’s amazing bounty of food and Fair Trade ingredients. We invite a leader from the food justice movement as a keynote speaker to inspire us to take action. The funds we raise are central to our organizing efforts, and the fun we have organizing it develops new CAGJ leaders every year. Join the fun!

Food Justice is the right of communities everywhere to produce, distribute, access, and eat good food regardless of race, class, gender, ethnicity, citizenship, ability, religion, or community. Good food is healthful, local, sustainable, culturally appropriate, humane, and produced for the sustenance of people and the planet.
Through community education, political action, and anti-oppressive organizing and community-building, CAGJ's Food Justice Project seeks to challenge and transform the globalized, industrial, corporate-driven food system and promote existing alternatives as we join the global struggle for food sovereignty for all!
AGRA Watch's objectives are to monitor and question the Gates Foundation's participation in the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA). Upon researching this initiative and its historical precedents, AGRA Watch finds the current approach politically, environmentally, socially, and ethically problematic. We support sustainable, socially responsible, and indigenous alternatives in Africa, and connect these movements to those occurring in our local communities.
