#OurNewNormal | The Raven Corps of Portland, Oregon

Image contains two equal panels on the right and left. In the right-hand panel, there are two other panels split horizontally. In the top panel, there is a photo of a woman in a video conference. Below this, there is another photo of a woman in a video conference. Just a little to the left of the woman, there is a smaller photo of a man with a white border around it. In the left-hand panel, there is white text on a dark blue background that says “T.O.F.U. Talks #OurNewNormal Season 03 Episode 09 With The Raven Corps of Portland, Oregon”.

As I mentioned in the post for the last episode I shared, I’ve decided to wrap-up the #OurNewNormal series thanks in part to the shift in focus of much of the world to the need to address systematic racism, police violence, and other issues related to the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Since I don’t want to detract from such discussions, but I also want to acknowledge the time people spent in talking with me, I decided to simply post the remaining sessions during this week and then wrap things up.

So, with that in mind, here is the final episode I recorded late last month, and I hope you take the time to check it out and learn about the great work The Raven Corps is doing.

Focusing again on a vegan organization, this time around I chat with Claire Howe and Cami Hoffman about The Raven Corps and how the group’s work and methods have changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. From developing QuaranTEEN, a youth-led virtual community, to preparing to tackle toxic masculinity while addressing the needs of many in their communities, Claire and Cami showcase just how the organization has continued to be effective in their new normal.
