As we continue to resist the unprecedented attacks on our rights, we draw inspiration from those who fought before us. Robert "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 Chicago office in 1993. 

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.
