Make Meaningful Connections In Detroit

Our promise to you as a member is to create opportunity for connections and to integrate you into a community. We believe connection is paramount to a thriving Black community in America today. We have to work with each other and find strength in connection. We know people leave Detroit when they don’t have anchoring through connection, so we’re dedicated to retaining talent through innovative activities and opportunities for connection. We are not just your “plug” for success we’re also your “outlet” for fun.
