April showers are here and so is our annual Membership Month! Membership Month is when we rally our community to support CAGJ by pledging money or time. In celebration of CAGJ’s 15th anniversary, your membership gift to CAGJ will go twice as far, helping us hire a second organizer to confront corporate power and fight for food justice for all!
$10,000 Goal to Hire New Organizer: Your gift now will help us meet the growing demands of our multiple campaigns, by hiring a new part-time organizer. For fifteen years CAGJ has confronted corporate power through the collective strength of our members and community organizing together. We have accomplished so much, and with only one full-time staff person! Now, to effectively coordinate our transnational organizing (which has already made the GM banana a high profile issue – check out this HuffPost piece), we need to expand. Our first goal this month of raising 10k is to hire a new Co-Director, and later this year we will hire an AGRA Watch Organizer. You can help us double our staffing in 2016 with your Membership donation!
$5000 Matching Grant: With your gift, we can reach this goal, with the generous matching grant from UFCW 21 and anonymous CAGJ donors! All donations up to $5000 through April will be matched, dollar for dollar, so donate now to ensure CAGJ can continue our transnational organizing for food sovereignty.
Please consider becoming a Monthly Sustainer or providing a one-time contribution of $15, $50, or $125. Most of CAGJ’s revenue comes from individual donations. If you can’t donate funds at this time, but can pledge to participate in CAGJ over the next year, you too can sign up to become a Member (or renew)!
THANK YOU for helping CAGJ grow stronger in 2016!
