What is Baltimore Harm Reduction Coalition?
BHRC is a volunteer member-driven organization that strives to be non-hierarchical and consensus-based. We are comprised of one full-time staff member, approximately 30 active volunteer members and a growing network of BHRC alumni. While the majority of members are students or recent university alumni, membership is open to all “lifelong learners”. Active members regularly attend BHRC all-group and subcommittee meetings, which are held in Baltimore city.
