who we are

About Calling All Crows

Calling All Crows creates campaigns that harness the power of music to address pressing social issues and to create long-term systemic change. We are building a feminist and just music industry by training artists, venues, and fans in sexual violence prevention and inclusion practices.

Our Mission

CAC channels the power of music into sustained, community-driven action by building an on-ramp to activism. Through our campaigns, we engage the music industry in social movement building.

Our Vision

CAC works toward a future where all people’s full humanity is realized, and local and global communities are equitable, just, and thriving.

Our History

CAC was founded in 2008 by Chadwick Stokes (Dispatch) and manager Sybil Gallagher. With more than 15 years of education, service, advocacy, and fundraising, we’ve become a recognized partner and pipeline for social movement building.
