We are all devastated by the loss of Stephanie Mott. As a former chair and current vice-chair of the Equality Kansas board of directors, Stephanie’s leadership has helped define our organization and our mission.
Her tireless dedication to Equality Kansas, to the Kansas Statewide Transgender Education Project which she founded in 2010, and to the cause of LGBT equality, has blazed a path others will follow for years to come.
Stephanie served unselfishly, often putting the needs of the Kansas LGBT community ahead of her own. We cannot find adequate words to express our grief at her passing, but we will find solace in the knowledge that her life and her work will make Kansas a better place for future generations.
