Connect to Protect® (C2P®) Detroit is a diverse and passionate coalition committed to changing the policies and practices that keep our city’s young gay, bisexual men and transgender women vulnerable to HIV.



The newly-formed Connect to Protect®- Detroit coalition is a group of hard-working, passionate representatives from various local youth-serving and LGBTQ advocacy organizations, HIV prevention programs, universities, health departments and community activist groups. Using our collective expertise and experience, C2P®-Detroit aims to reduce HIV infections in Detroit’s population of young men who have sex with men by targeting policies, practices and aspects of the built environment that are linkable to HIV risk. By making high-level changes, we hope to ensure the continued success of existing HIV prevention efforts and create a better future for our most vulnerable youth.  C2P®-Detroit meeting will be held monthly until May, 2012 when strategic planning and the development of Structural Change Objectives (SCO) commences.
