One of the original safe spaces for disenfranchised communities, The Catch also served as a refuge for many during the AIDS crisis. As her club grew to become known as the unofficial "Studio 54 of the West Coast," Jewel became a national model for how to fight discrimination and serve the less fortunate as she fought tirelessly against racism, homophobia and hate for over four decades.

Jewel built organizations such as The Minority AIDS Project nd Rue's House, the first shelter for women with AIDS and their children, and later in life started her own non-profit health clinic next door to the club called, The Village Health Foundation, wher she still works today. #legacy

The event will be hosted by Bonnie Harrison, Founder and CEO of SITIS Inc
