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!

We organize and support campaigns in solidarity with local family farmers and food producers, farmworkers, for the right to good food, food chain workers, and food justice globally!

SAT Sept 21, 9am – 5pm

CAGJ Membership Gathering Part 1 – Past, Present, Future: Assessing CAGJ

Location: Accessible location in Seattle TBD. Details shared soon. Register today!

Calling all CAGJ Members, Partners, & Supporters! We invite you to join us for a day of reflection on CAGJ’s role in the food sovereignty movement. As we approach the 20th anniversary of the WTO protests, we invite you to look back at CAGJ’s story, assess how we’re doing now, and vision the organization and world we want in the future. Our consultant Scott Winn will guide us through conversations to assess CAGJ’s accomplishments and current programs through a racial equity lens.

The September gathering is the first of three membership gatherings, we have planned during  our year-long Strategic Assessment & Planning Process (SAPP for short), which is beginning now, and going through next Spring. Our goal is to reinvigorate CAGJ by engaging our members and solidarity partners in reflecting on our purpose in the food sovereignty movement and our role in the current political moment. We want our members and partners to lead in determining a vision for the future of CAGJ, our organizing strategies, and how we will transform the food system! Read more about SAPP. And please register for our Sept 21 gathering today – We will feed you!
