On behalf of your C2PLA Co-Chairs, we’d like to thank you for making this year’s 2013 C2PLA holiday retreat a great success. Those that were present definitely experienced “VIP C2PLA Style.” The Mayme Clayton Library and Museum was the perfect backdrop to host this year’s retreat. It had a great energy and welcoming spirit. We encourage all of you to visit there if you get the chance and please tell others about it as well. It truly is one of LA’s hidden gems.

A special thank you to our host Kieta Mutepfa and Dale Madison who made us all feel “very special” throughout the day.

We've had a very successful year and your contributions during the year made 2013 one of our coalition’s best years yet. Please note with the exception of the Homeless Subcommittee all subcommittees for the month of December will be held via phone only.
Wishing you all the happiest of holiday seasons.
December 1st/World AIDS DAY is a day set aside to remember lives lost, to encourage greater understanding of the disease and to celebrate a way forward in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Instead of celebrating, commemorating, educating, and fighting for only ONE day...members of the C2PLA Coalition gather together and support each other ALL year in reducing new infections.
We invite you to join us!
