In the heart of our journey for equality, Eddie Bernice Johnson stood as a symbol of strength and compassion. William Waybourn, one of our founders, shared these heartfelt reflections on working alongside her:

โ€œShe was very good on our issues,โ€ he expressed, highlighting her innate understanding of LGBTQ+ concerns as a registered nurse. In the challenging era of AIDS, Johnson tirelessly fought against discriminatory legislation, displaying a deep commitment to healthcare access without prejudice.

When Dallas Gay Alliance sought her support for the AIDS Resource Center, Johnson readily joined as an advisor. Waybourn recalled her unwavering commitment: โ€œShe showed up for us. She always made the right choice.โ€

Even after her election to Congress in 1992, Johnson continued her support for LGBTQ+ health initiatives. In a climate of reluctance, she ensured that vital funds reached organizations like Resource Center, standing strong against discrimination.

Eddie Bernice Johnson's legacy is woven into the fabric of our fight for justice and equality. May her profound impact inspire us to carry the torch forward. ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ
