Millie Bobby Brown, Stranger Things

They start younger and younger these days – becoming socially aware, that is.

At last night’s MTV Movie and TV Awards, not only did Millie Bobby Brown win the award for best actor in a series for her work as the telekinetic Eleven on Stranger Things, she used her acceptance appearance to support social causes.

Along with the rest of her Stranger Things costars, Brown donned a blue ampersand pin to show her support for GLAAD and a blue ribbon representing the ACLU. The ampersand is meant to be a symbol of unity and inclusion, described as “showing solidarity and speaking up to resist forces that try to divide,” GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis told Variety.

Brown concluded her acceptance speech by thanking Stranger Things creators the Duffer brothers for creating a “badass, female, iconic character that I’ve got the honor to play.” Watch Brown’s acceptance, and see her pin and ribbon, below.
