Notice about SLEE and COVID-19
Greetings to our Amazing CAGJ Community!
The COVID-19 pandemic has been profoundly disruptive to our communities, and emphasizes the vital need to work for stronger, healthier food systems. CAGJ is dedicated to continuing to raise awareness and mobilize for food sovereignty, with our partners locally and globally.
On Saturday October 17th, Community Alliance for Global Justice will celebrate our 14th annual SLEE! Dinner. After much consideration, we have decided to hold SLEE as a virtual gala. The health and safety of our community is incredibly important to us. CAGJ is committed to providing you and your guests with the information, connections, and experiences that have made SLEE such a powerful event year after year. We are currently in the process of transitioning all of the amazing elements of SLEE to a virtual setting and will provide updates as they develop.
We hope that you and your families are staying healthy during such difficult circumstances. At times like these we are even more grateful for the incredible support of our community. You make it possible for CAGJ to continue organizing for food justice, work that we all benefit from.
We will announce updates as soon as we are able!
Thank you once again for your support of SLEE! and CAGJ. We truly could not make this event happen without you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Our keynote speaker this year will be Chef Tarik Abdullah! Known for his innovative pop-up restaurants, Tarik is an experienced chef and youth educator. Chef Tarik’s cuisine is inspired by the tastes and flavors of his childhood, growing up in a Muslim family and broader community where ethnic foods were the norm. With deep roots in Seattle’s south end, his mission is to “Feed the People” creating community one meal at a time against a backdrop of great music and visual arts.
