The 6th Annual Community Alliance for Global Justice Strengthening Local Economies Everywhere Dinner will take place Saturday, September 7 at the University Christian Church in the U-District. This annual dinner plays a pivotal role in CAGJ organizing and fundraising efforts.

This year CAGJ will be celebrating Food Service Workers and highlighting some empowering organizing and initiatives.
