  • How can you embrace the fullness of your Self?
  • How can you hold all of your identity, all that makes you who you are?
  • In a world that wants to silence BIPOC, LGBTQIA2s+, womxn, disabled people’s experiences and more, how do you celebrate these aspects of your identity?
  • How do you stand up for your identity and the identities of others to be accepted and celebrated by others?
