I am Jessica Raven.

I’m a writer, mother, activist, hugger, and living room dancer.
IMG_4174I like to take pictures of things, walk long distances, laugh out loud, wear patterns, and drink wine.

I’ve survived poverty, homelessness, domestic violence, sexual harassment, and sexual assault. I blog about all of these experiences in an effort to make sense of them, make peace with them, and end stigma & violence.

Right now, I’m working to make the world a better, safer, and happier place with organizations like Collective Action for Safe Spaces and Polaris.

When I’m not busy saving or seeing the world, I’m baking, home-making, and playing word games.

I also like to tweet: @thejessicaraven.

  2. “traveling across the country,
    searching for a place to call home.

    I’m spending the rest of my life
    creating one.”

    You took these words right from my own heart. I cannot tell you how many times I have said them. Wow. Thank you for being so much like me, I didn’t know you even existed! Can’t wait to dive into your blog.
