HRC news release:
Stephan has been an HRC member since the summer of 2007 and he certainly deserves the spotlight this month. On February 12 Stephan represented HRC urging the Broward County Commission of Florida to include gender identity and gender expression in an amendment to the Broward County Human Rights Ordinance. Along with Stephan members of the transgender community offered testimony to their struggles and need to have this legislation.
And we are proud to announce the Commission passed the amendment by a vote of 9-0. As Stephan recounts "the vote was met with a standing ovation and applause. The transgender community in South Florida has worked for years to see this day become a reality."
Stephan is just one of the many vital & dedicated volunteers that work everyday with HRC to ensure equality for GLBT Americans. To get involved and volunteer in your community please visit www.hrc.org/volunteer.
