Seeking SLEE Volunteers & Interns!

Calling on all CAGJ members and volunteers!

Help make CAGJ’s SLEE Dinner spectacular again this year! We are seeking new interns, and folks who have a few hours (or more) to volunteer in the CAGJ office.

Want to gain an on-the-ground view of grassroots organizing and learn valuable tools to support nonprofits? By working with CAGJ to plan the 12th annual SLEE! dinner, you will grow your skills in nonprofit development and fundraising, community engagement and outreach, publicity and communications, volunteer management, event planning, and more, all while engaging in political education opportunities and connecting with other interesting people!

Let us know if you are interested and have time to help out in the next couple of weeks, or any time before the end of September!

Thank you!

About the SLEE Dinner:

Community Alliance for Global Justice’s 12th Annual SLEE! Dinner

Keynote by Edgar Franks, Farmworker Organizer, Community to Community

“The Legacy We Inherit: Luchando por una Vida AgroEcológica”

 

Saturday, September 29th, 2018

Happy Hour 5pm, Dinner 6:30pm

University Christian Church, 4731 15th Ave NE, Seattle

This year, SLEE! will center agroecology, a set of agricultural principles and a process for social and ecological transformation. Amidst the current political context of deportation raids on workers at the backbone of our food system, we will uplift a liberatory vision that connects food justice and immigrant justice. Join us to celebrate farmworkers who are building community self-determination!

Edgar Franks organizes farmworkers with Community to Community Development (C2C) in Bellingham, WA. In his keynote, he will reflect on agroecology as a way of life and share their work to ensure the needs of migrant farmworkers are represented on the path toward food sovereignty.

Edgar serves as the Formación Cívica (Civic Engagement) Program Coordinator at C2C. Through the lenses of food sovereignty and farm worker justice, C2C is working to create a politically conscious intersectional base fighting for a local solidarity economy. Edgar currently represents the Western region in the national coordination of the US Food Sovereignty Alliance.
