Recorded SAT July 13, 2019: CAGJ’s 13th Annual SLEE Dinner - Strengthening Local Economies Everywhere

Keynote: Doria Robinson, Executive Director of Urban Tilth, "For the Love of Soil: Dismantling the Extractive Economy with Justice and Food Sovereignty"

Doria Robinson is a leader in both the food sovereignty and climate justice movements. Trained as a Watershed Restoration Ecologist, Doria is the Executive Director of Urban Tilth, a community-based organization rooted in Richmond, California dedicated to cultivating urban agriculture to help the community build a more sustainable, healthy, and just food system. CAGJ works closely with Urban Tilth as members of the Western region of the US Food Sovereignty Alliance.

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 13th annual SLEE Dinner (Strengthening Local Economies Everywhere) will highlight the role of food sovereignty and agroecology in leading us to a Just Transition to address the climate crisis.
