CAGJ depends on SLEE to raise essential funds so that we can continue our movement building year after year. We are thrilled to celebrate Black and Indigenous led food justice organizing in Seattle with our keynote by Black Star Farmers!  Black Star Farmers is dedicated to creating radical, joyful, and supportive space for communities to reclaim their ancestral foodways. Born out of the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) during the 2020 George Floyd uprising, today they steward several gardens in Seattle, on occupied Duwamish and Coast Salish territory. They are committed to facilitating difficult conversations about race, anti colonialism, anti capitalism, and the abolition of all oppressive systems especially as it relates to BIPOC communities.
