CAGJ’s 14th Annual SLEE Gala

Strengthening Local Economies Everywhere!
Saturday, October 17, 2020, 6-7pm

Community Alliance for Global Justice grew out of a mass people’s movement that shut down the World Trade Organization in 1999, and continues to work toward transforming unjust trade and agricultural practices. CAGJ’s 14th annual SLEE Gala (Strengthening Local Economies Everywhere) will highlight the hope embodied by youth on the front lines of the food justice movement.

Keynote: Chef Tarik Abdullah, “Feed the People: Food, Kids, Community”

Known for his innovative pop-up restaurants, Tarik is an experienced chef and youth educator. Chef Tarik’s cuisine is inspired by the tastes and flavors of his childhood, growing up in a Muslim family and broader community where ethnic foods were the norm. With deep roots in Seattle’s south end, his mission is to “Feed the People” creating community one meal at a time against a backdrop of great music and visual arts.
