Community Alliance for Global Justice presents our 5th Annual

STRENGTHENING LOCAL ECONOMIES EVERYWHERE! DINNER

Community Event & Annual CAGJ Fundraiser & Help us celebrate our 10th anniversary!

The Strengthening Local Economies, Everywhere! Dinner plays a pivotal role in CAGJ’s organizing and fundraising efforts. We are very excited to announce that this year’s keynote address will be given by Aba Ifeoma, co-founder of the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network. Aba has been a political activist for 17 years in Detroit. She is active in the urban beekeeping community, and the lead beekeeper and Sunday work crew leader at DBCFSN's D-Town Farm.

Help us build community solidarity while also connecting local and global struggles for justice through this fun, engaging and inspiring event!
