On Saturday (March 21st), Kerry Washington was on hand to accept the Vanguard Award at the 2015 GLAAD Media Awards and used the moment to deliver a powerful and moving speech in support of the fair treatment of everyone that garnished standing ovations.

"I'm going to say some stuff and I might be preaching to the choir, but I'm going to say it. Not just for us, but because on Monday morning people are going to click a link to hear what that woman from 'Scandal' said at that award show, and so, I think some stuff needs to be said," Washington told the audience, which included Channing Tatum and Ellen DeGeneres, to applause.

"Women, poor people, people of color, people with disabilities, gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, trans people, intersex people — we have been pitted against each other and made to feel there are limited seats at the table for those of us who fall into the category of 'other.' As a result, we have become afraid of one another," the star continued. Watch the entire moment beneath:
