CAGJ’s 12th annual Strengthening Local Economies Everywhere! (SLEE!) Dinner will take place on September 29th, 2018 at the University Christian Church in Seattle’s University District.

Community Alliance for Global Justice (CAGJ) is a Seattle-based, grassroots, volunteer-run organization whose mission is to strengthen the global food sovereignty movement.

SLEE! is so much more than just a delicious, locally sourced, Fair Trade meal: it is a powerful community event where we inspire people to take action. This year, we are thrilled to feature Edgar Franks delivering the keynote, “The Legacy We Inherit: Luchando por una Vida AgroEcológica,” reflecting on agroecology as a way of life. Edgar organizes farmworkers with Community to Community Development in Bellingham, WA.

We need a team of interns to contribute to the vision and make it even more spectacular than past years!

Dessert & Silent Auctions Coordinators: Coordinate a group of volunteers and interns to do outreach to supportive contacts for dessert auction and silent auction donations.

Dessert & Silent Auction Outreach: Email and follow-up with businesses and CAGJ members to put together silent auction packages and dessert auction. Need to be able to make day-time calls.

Publicity: Help create promotional materials and conduct outreach to our Community Partners to publicize the event.

Food & Farm Outreach: Contact the many farmers, fisherfolks, creameries, wineries, breweries, and others who support CAGJ with their amazing goods to see if they can help out this year.

Table Captain Outreach: This essential role follows up with our valued CAGJ membership requesting that they become Table Captains to provide an extra level of financial support at our dinner. You will be provided with all the contacts and outreach materials you need.

We are currently accepting interns for summer quarter if you would like academic credit, or a minimum of 10 weeks between now and mid-October.
