2022 Operation

Cow’s milk is served at EVERY public school in the United States through the National School Lunch Program. Often, a carton of milk will be placed on a student’s tray even if they’ve refused it. Milk is an inherently harmful product for animals, human and non-human, and the environment. What you need to know:

– About 70% of the students who receive their lunch through the NSLP are people of color. These populations have higher rates of lactose intolerance (AKA being lactose-normal).

– Plant-based milk options are ONLY available if a student has a doctor’s note saying they are unable to consume dairy. This option is often inaccessible to marginalized students who need it.

– As much as 45 million gallons of cow’s milk were wasted in 2019 in US schools.

Join us in building a youth-led movement of young Vegan (AKA consistent anti-oppression) advocates. We’re creating an educational campaign and corresponding social media campaign on the horrors of dairy using an inclusive, comprehensive, multi-dimensional approach. This Operation will end in a culminating national action targeted at the USDA/dairy industry/National School Lunch Program.

STUDENTS: We need you. Get your peers involved and organize with us on the ground!

QuaranTEEN: our online community

Launched in 2020 in response to the pandemic, QuaranTEEN is our online community and an essential part of The Raven Corps! It’s a super simple concept with a big impact. We use Discord to connect young activists from around the world, and Zoom to host all kinds of advocacy and community-building events. It’s a great place for change-makers to take their passion online, and to make new friends while they’re at it.

Hang out with us

We’re always up to something. From discussion groups, to dance parties, to community fundraisers, there’s lots of ways to meet up with the Ravens both remotely and IRL.
