In our work to resist the unprecedented attacks on our rights, we draw inspiration from those who fought before us. Robert Bonvouloir "Bon" Foster was a powerful voice in Chicago in the early days of the HIV epidemic, opposing injustice and resisting discrimination. Our annual event honors his selfless act to bequeath his estate to found Lambda Legal's Midwest Regional Office.

At last year’s Bon Foster Civil Rights Celebration, we joined together in a celebration of progress. We dedicated toasts to our hard-fought victories and pledged to charge forward in our fight. No one imagined the path ahead would look like it does today. Those who stood in our way now run the country, occupying the highest seats of power. Unfortunately, we’ve been here before. Lambda Legal learned to fight and win in the courts when the government is against us. So now, once again, WE OBJECT!

Lambda Legal has taken its powerful place in the resistance, a role familiar to Bon Foster. Today, we look to his activism for inspiration as we refight old battles and continually push forward for equality. We are committed to standing stronger than ever in resistance, as a loud voice of objection and a powerful force in the courts.
