'The Just Be Revolution' - Canberra


Just Be is…

A Revolution of courage, strength and love.

A Revolution of tolerance, kindness and confidence.

A Revolution to change how we feel about ourselves and to change how we see others.

Just Be is fighting for a future where everyone is accepted for who they are and how they look.

The Just Be Revolution is a platform to share stories, and as our army grows, our voice will get louder. Together we are stronger and can make the world a better place for everyone.
