Stella is the first transgender teen to testify in front of the United States Senate. Click the arrow to watch Stella’s opening testimony. Read her complete opening remarks here.

“I am a young person who believes in the value of hard work, respecting others and giving back to my community. I’ve loved politics my entire life, and it’s my goal to run for public office someday.  I just need the chance to live my life and achieve my dreams. Passing the Equality Act will allow me the freedom to do that in whatever state I choose to live in. Shouldn’t I have the right to live freely in the country that I love?”

Watch the video featuring GenderCool Champions that opened the hearing.

Join Champion Stella and thousands of others to push Congress to pass the Equality Act which would protect LGBTQ people across key areas of life.
