CAGJ is proud to co-host the 2016 Food Sovereignty Prize with Community to Community! Together we invite you to celebrate the 8th Annual Food Sovereignty Prize, awarded by the US Food Sovereignty Alliance to frontline organizations transforming our food system by building power and creating real community-led solutions to poverty, hunger and climate change.
Join activists, organizers and community-based organizations from Seattle and throughout the US for a ceremony and reception to honor this year’s winners: Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa and Farmworkers Association of Florida. In the face of increased corporate agribusiness interests threatening their food systems, this year’s honorees address critical needs for farmers and farmworkers by strengthening alliances and advancing food sovereignty through the dissemination of agroecological practices. Learn more about the Prize and our Honorees.
The event will be a wonderful return to the site of our 2014 Africa-US Food Sovereignty Summit, which included many members of this year’s international prize winner, AFSA. The Prize – an alternative to the Big Ag-sponsored World Food Prize – will be awarded in Seattle for the first time since its 2009 inception (when CAGJ received Honorable Mention).
The USFSA is an alliance of organizers, scholars and working families, dedicated to food justice and food sovereignty in the US. CAGJ is a founding member.
