The UBU Project's DIVERSITY EQUITY & INCLUSION CURRICULUM
Builds on these treasure chest words by including a focus on engaging and celebrating our similarities and differences by looking at individual, group and community intersectionality through an equity lens of "I am" and "I choose to be" statements.

Every UBU prevention residency is a celebration of life based upon positive self-discovery, making healthy choices and advancing the life-narrative of all involved towards an affirming sense of wholeness and self-compassion.
