CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS!
SLEE! Community Alliance for Global Justice presents our 12th Annual STRENGTHENING LOCAL ECONOMIES EVERYWHERE! DINNER and we need lots of help! SLEE! plays a pivotal role in CAGJ’s organizing and fundraising efforts, and volunteers make it happen!
WHEN: Saturday, September 29, 2018
WHERE: University Christian Church, 4731 15th Ave NE, Seattle WA 98105
Keynote: Edgar Franks, “The Legacy We Inherit: Luchando por una Vida AgroEcológica”. Edgar organizes farmworkers with Community to Community Development (C2C) in Bellingham, WA. In his keynote, he will reflect on agroecology as a way of life and share their work to ensure the needs of migrant farmworkers are represented on the path toward food sovereignty. Amidst the current political context of deportation raids on workers at the backbone of our food system, we will uplift a liberatory vision that connects food justice and immigrant justice. Join us to celebrate farmworkers who are building community self-determination!
Help us build community solidarity while also connecting local and global struggles for justice through this fun, engaging and inspiring event!
