Bon Foster Civil Rights Celebration

Join us for Lambda Legal’s premier Chicago event, bringing together more than 500 LGBTQ+ leaders and allies! The Bon Foster Civil Rights Celebration honors the memory of Robert Bonvoulior “Bon” Foster, the late civil rights activist and attorney who was a powerful voice in Chicago in the early days of the HIV epidemic, opposing injustice and resisting discrimination. In 1993, a generous bequest from Bon Foster’s estate established Lambda Legal’s Chicago-based Midwest Regional Office, beginning a legacy of civil rights victories won by Lambda Legal across the heartland.

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. With your support Lambda Legal will continue to ensure equal protections for the LGBTQ community and everyone living with HIV. The evening will feature cocktails, heavy hors d'oeuvres, dancing and entertainment.

Bon Foster 2022 will adhere to all federal and local COVID-19 recommendations. Proof of vaccination and compliance with mask mandates will be required for all guests. Advanced registration is required.
