What we do

Educate for Action2014-06-28 11.09.56

Community-based workshops and "teach-outs" educating people on food justice & sovereignty issues and encouraging people to take action.

"Our Food, Our Right: Recipes for Food Justice" is CAGJ's educational book in two editions, with recipes, how-to, and essays on food politics, justice, and sovereignty. A great teaching resource!

Gratitude for a Beautiful SLEE 2018

THANK YOU to everyone who made CAGJ’s 12th annual SLEE Dinner such a success!

A special thank you to Edgar Franks, Farmworker organizer with Community to Community Development whose keynote, “The Legacy We Inherit: Luchando por una vida AgroEcologica” was a brilliant reflection on both what we are up against, and what gives us hope in this moment of struggle to make another world possible.

Check out Elliot Stoller’s photos, and the video of Edgar’s keynote (many thanks to Mike McCormick for capturing the speech)!

Our SLEE call to action included taking this group photo, to send a strong message to WA’s Congressional delegation as well as statewide leaders to demand they vote against House Bill 6417, to prevent the expansion of the exploitative H2A visa program, and to pressure for an investigation into famworker Honesto Silva Ibarra’s death.

We are so grateful to the literally hundreds of supporters and over 70 volunteers who showed up to make SLEE happen, and run so smoothly. We greatly appreciate our Sponsors, Community Partners, Dessert and Silent Auction donors, and the Farmers, Farmworkers, Fishermen, Fair Trade purveyors, Chefs and others whose bounty produced an unforgettable meal!

We will announce how much we raised, and if we reached our goal of $30,000 as soon as possible; If you were not able to come, you can help us reach our goal with a donation to CAGJ today – THANK YOU!
