AAC&U and NASPA are partnering with other organizations to support EVERYONE MATTERS, a 6-month global social media campaign to foster inclusiveness and reduce intolerance sponsored by the What’s Your Issue Foundation. EVERYONE MATTERS offers a powerful collective message – don’t judge/respect everyone’s differences - by bringing together under one banner everyone who is judged and stereotyped by how they look and/or to what group they belong.
