RAVEN’s vision is a country that honours the ancestral laws, rights and stewardship values of Indigenous Peoples and their equitable access to the justice system within a thriving natural environment.
WHY NOW? Because the future depends on it.
Our mission is to raise legal defence funds to assist Indigenous Peoples who enforce their rights and title to protect their traditional territories.
“We see RAVEN as the NGO best-placed to assist this First Nation because of its mandate to support First Nations by levelling the playing field when it comes to going head to head with government-assisted industrial expansion.” — Colin Baines, The Cooperative, Social Goals Campaign Manager
Through our public education programs, RAVEN collaborates with Indigenous Peoples to eliminate environmental racism and foster a greater understanding of indigenous rights and governance.
