Rosa Lopez Dallas City Council voted unanimously for an honorary sign topper to remember Rosa Lopez. This is the first sign topper for a Latina and the first for a lesbian.

Earlier this year, a sign topper was dedicated to Don Maison, the longtime CEO of AIDS Services Dallas. Lopez was a West Dallas community housing advocate.

She moved to Dallas in 1991 with experience in housing. By the next year, she had founded and became executive director of Vecinos Unidos, a community housing development corporation that developed 57 brick homes in the Los Altos neighborhood in West Dallas.

The project was completed in 2001. She co-founded Lesbianas Latinas de Dallas, the first lesbian organization for Latinas in Texas, and was a founder of Rainbow LULAC 4871, the first LGBTQ LULAC organization in the country.
