Sage Dolan-Sandrino is an 18-year-old citizen artist and aspiring filmmaker and creative director. Since beginning her transition at 13, through public advocacy, policy work, and journalism, Sage has taken on the responsibility of tackling the systemic issues within our public school system, arts education, trans-resource access inequity, exclusion, and disservice of trans youth and students in classrooms and communities across the nation. Named a Young Futurist of 2017 by The Root, she has served as an Ambassador to the Obama White House’s Initiative on Educational Excellence for African-Americans, a youth council member to the Aspen Institute’s National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development, a National Council Advisor for the National Center for Transgender Equality, and currently serves as a GLAAD Campus Ambassador and on The National Black Justice Coalition's Black Trans Advisory Board. This year Sage appeared in the Gucci x Irregular Labs film "The Future is Fluid" and has since continued to work closely with Chime for Change towards the amplification of youth voices and global gender equity.
