"BeProud is a movement to unite people through tolerance and bring change through the ethic of peaceful community. Hate is a powerful thing; it hurts a lot of people. Hate crimes target the very premises of a person's identity without any consideration for them as an individual, living being. The BeProud campaign fosters unity by "raising awareness, sharing inspiring stories, and influencing people at every level of society." It just makes so much sense to #EndHate - be part of the movement."
