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.

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 have been here before. And, we know what to do. Our history of fighting institutionalized injustice helped spawn a deeply committed, politically connected, and proudly vocal community that stood up to hate and intolerance. Together, we formed a party — and made it a party — to fight for and win our rights.
