The Connexxus/Centro de Mujeres Collection contains the administrative records of Connexxus / Centro de Mujeres, one of the first Los Angeles non-profit organizations that catered and provided services to lesbians.
In early 1984, Adel Martinez and Lauren Jardine conceived the idea behind Connexxus, a women-run center in Los Angeles that provides quality and comprehensive services that cater to women, particularly lesbians. In May 1984, Martinez, Jardine, and a group of women met in the home of Vivian Brown to discuss the idea and how to bring it into fruition. They envisioned a space in which lesbians could thrive professionally, personally, and socially.
