Pennsylvania Harm Reduction Coalition
Devin Reaves, MSW, is the Executive Director Pennsylvania Harm Reduction Coalition. Living in recovery since 2007, he is a community organizer and grassroots advocacy leader. Devin has worked on the expansion of access to the lifesaving medication naloxone, implantation of 911 Good Samaritan policies, and the development of youth-oriented systems. He wants to build constituencies of consequence that will lead to meaningful public health policy changes around substance use disorders. Devin is the founder and Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Harm Reduction Coalition (PAHRC), which promotes the health, dignity, and human rights of individuals who use drugs and communities impacted by drug use. Recognizing that social inequity, criminalization, and stigma silence those affected most, PAHRC advocates for policies that improve the quality of life for people who use drugs, people in recovery, and their communities. Devin also serves on Pennsylvania Overdose Task Force and the Board of Directors for the Association of Recovery Schools.
