15th Annual SLEE Gala

Every year, SLEE is a great success that not only raises one-third of CAGJ’s annual budget, but brings together over 300 guests who are inspired to take action for food justice. Usually, we serve a delicious fair-trade dinner that guests share while attending the gala. For the second year in a row, we are planning on holding SLEE virtually to keep eachother safe in the era of COVID-19.

Keynote: Raj Patel, “Is this What Democracy Looks Like? A Tale of Two Seattles”

CAGJ is celebrating this year with keynote speaker, Raj Patel! A seasoned trade and food activist, academic, and author, Patel delivers ever-salient and inspiring perspectives on food systems transformation. From working for the WTO to protesting the WTO, to authoring award-winning books, to directing his new documentary The Ant and the Grasshopper, Patel disrupts the status quo so that we can all plant seeds for a just food revolution. Learn more about his work.
