Greetings C2PLA Members and Supporters,
On behalf of the C2PLA Co-chairs and project staff I wish you a Happy New Year. We hope the holiday season brought you great joy, good health, and a renewed passion for creating structural change.
The New Year brings renewed opportunities to grow, develop and improve our community. As 2012 commences, C2PLA prepares for several key changes designed to 1) improve the coalition structures and strategies, and 2) engage more individuals and organizations from different sectors of our community who are committed to reducing HIV/AIDS among young gay and bisexual men of color in Los Angeles.
In the coming weeks, our subcommittees will be meeting for the first time in 2012. They will be looking at new ways to achieve their structural change objectives or SCOs. These subcommittee members, along with other members of the larger working group will share their plans and identify their collective goals for a prosperous 2012.
On Friday, Feb. 24, the C2PLA Coalition will host its first coalition meeting of 2012. This meeting will be the first with new co-chair Andre Molette at the helm. He will give us an update on the Fair Education Act and share some highlights from Jordan Rustin Coalition’s MLK Voice Summit which C2PLA is supporting. We will also have our first report back from the newly formed Sustainability Subcommittee.
Your involvement is vital to C2PLA’s success. If you would like more information on how to get involved, or have general questions about the coalition please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
May 2012 be a creative, productive, fruitful year.
C2PLA Project Director
