The Baltimore Reclaiming community currently meets twice a year to conduct the business of the community. Anyone is welcome to attend these meetings as long as you have previously attended a Baltimore Reclaiming event. Our tradition is non-hierarchical and no one is in charge. Rather, our community has working groups called "cells" that self-organize uses the principles of consensus. Here are the cells that are currently active in Baltimore Reclaiming:
These cells are currently active in Baltimore Reclaiming:
The Activist Cell The Activist Cell meets to plan campaigns, direct actions, solidarity with other activist networks, and other activist-oriented items of interest. If you are interested in getting involved, contact Romana.

The Gracing Cell (temporary name!) This is a brand new cell that has just been created as of 1/7/2018. We imagine it will offer social events, host orientation calls for new members, and generally help make Baltimore Reclaiming a fun and welcome place to be. This cell is open for anyone to join, and its offerings are open for anyone to attend. Want to join? Contact Amanda.
The Media Cell This cell is responsible for managing this website, the Baltimore Reclaiming Instagram and Facebook accounts, and generally handling the online profile of our group. The Media Cell also takes the lead on creating any printed material that is needed, and hopes to start a blog in 2018! Interested in lending your help? Contact Jessica.
