What is The Raven Corps?
The Raven Corps is a youth-centered collective liberation movement and 501(c)3 nonprofit based out of Portland, OR. We support, empower, and mobilize Ravens (consistent anti-oppression activists between the ages of 15 and 22) who fight for liberation, justice, and sustainability through advocacy campaigns (aka “Operations”).

Are you a Vegan organization?
That is exactly what we are. However, we define Veganism as a philosophy, political stance, and lifestyle rooted in total liberation for ALL animals and our natural world. Not a diet. Not a trend. Not a whim.
What are the expectations of a Raven?
All Ravens are expected to join our Discord, communicate, and advocate for all animals and our natural world. Join us by filling out this short form, and we’ll be in touch. Join The Corps
I’m not plant-based. Can I join?
HELL yes! We understand that our food system is complicated and presents a number of barriers to eating a totally plant-based. We’re big believers in meeting people where they are, and we welcome all.
What’s in a name? Why Ravens?
Ravens are incredibly bright, resourceful, and interesting animals (badass birds )who often get a bad rap — much the same way our society often treats young people.
How specifically do Ravens take action?
We take action through Operations (consistent anti-oppression campaigns). We’re currently working on a campaign, “Operation: Mind Over Milk”, to raise awareness on the horrors of the dairy industry and increase access to student, climate, and animal-friendly plant-milk in the over 100,000 US schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program.
