CAGJ presents our 6th Annual Strengthening Local Economies Everywhere! Dinner
CAGJ's annual dinner plays a pivotal role in our organizing and fundraising efforts. The annual dinner not only raises one-third of CAGJ's annual budget, but serves as a key networking opportunity for those working to promote food justice here in Seattle and around the world. It is a unique event because we sponsor workers and organizers from across the food system to be guests at the dinner. This ensures a diverse event and exciting conversation.
This year we are highlighting the publication of the second edition of our book, "Our Food, Our Right: Recipes for Food Justice." We are proud to have two of our contributors, Valerie Segrest and Elise Krohn from the Northwest Indian College, as our keynote speakers. Valerie also founded the Muckleshoot Food Sovereignty Project. Through their work on health and social justice, Valerie and Elise aim to reintroduce traditional foods into the diets of native people in the Pacific Northwest.
