No Boundaries Coalition




Through training, education, and base building we deconstruct physical and imagined barriers in Central West Baltimore, thereby empowering residents to lead and live sustained community transformation.


The No Boundaries Coalition community includes everyone who lives, works, or worships in the Central West Baltimore neighborhoods of Sandtown, Druid Heights, Upton, Madison Park, Penn North, Reservoir Hill, and Bolton Hill.

Our History


Since 2008, the No Boundaries Coalition has brought Central West Baltimore together  to address racial and economic segregation by breaking down barriers and fostering commUNITY.


The work of the coalition began with the first Boundary Block Party, organized by neighbors from either side of Eutaw Place, a historic neighborhood and racial dividing line. Out of the success of the first several Boundary Block Parties, new connections were formed. In 2010, neighborhood leaders from across Central West Baltimore met for a lasagna dinner at St. Peter Claver Catholic Church on Fremont Street. They discussed a larger vision of organizing, advocacy, and capacity building together as a commUNITY. The No Boundaries Coalition was born. 


Since then, the No Boundaries Coalition has organized peace rallies, launched a produce market, advocated for equitable school construction and funding, provided leadership development, commissioned public art projects, hosted block parties, conducted walking tours and listening campaigns, and more. One of the No Boundaries Coalition’s most important contributions has been in police accountability.
