“If we can get people to value themselves as individuals and have the confidence to care about who they are and have pride in who they are, they will be motivated to help contribute to the good of the world. We are really trying to encourage people to own themselves for who they are and be active in fighting for rights, freedom, and safely,” Noir said.
