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.
