Mission: To reduce harm to the Humboldt community through advocacy, education, and services.
Brandie Wilson – Executive Director & Founder
Brandie has the combination of university education coupled with twenty-five years of street level experience regarding drug policy and Harm Reduction. Brandie has seen first hand the detrimental effects the war on drugs truly has in peoples’ lives. During graduate school she was given a most useful ideology by her mentor Jennifer Eichstedt, “power with, not power over”. This simple but powerful ideology is the foundation for any community work she approaches.
Brandie has served on cultural committees, conference planning committees, and non-profit boards. The journey through abstinence only programs led her to follow what she had always known to be true. A life of complete abstinence doe not work for everyone and we should all have the ability to determine what is right for ourselves.
