About Us

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.

Current or previous institutional representation includes:

  • Goucher College (Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program)
  • University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC)
  • Howard Community College
  • Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHBSPH)
  • Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (JHSON)
