Words have power. And telling our own stories can help us claim that power, says Bryan Hubain, associate vice president of student development and inclusion. Hubain is leading the I Am U Thriving campaign for students, staff, and faculty to share stories about themselves. Pictured here is campaign participant Ermiya Fanaeian, a trans youth activist and former director of diversity for ASUU. This visual campaign allows our campus family to share more about themselves and the complexities of identity, begin to learn about difference, and help us become more understanding, which is a crucial part to allyship, says Hubain.
