In the last decade, the issue of bullying has reached a fervor pitch with stars like Marsha Ambrosius, Lady Gaga, and Nick Cannon using their art and celebrity to address the hot button topic.

Now, in an effort to empower and inspire those affected to stand up for themselves, Meagan Good, her sister La’Miya Good, Christina Milian, Basketball Wives star Draya MicheleAdrienne Bailon, Karrueche Tran, and more have joined the BE YOU! anti-bullying campaign.

“The Be You campaign is a silent photography campaign promoting individuality. Founder and Hollywood publicist J.Ryan collaborated with Co-Founder and Creative Director, Brenn Colleen, on this photography escapade after watching a very compelling documentary following the lives of  several subjects and the difficulties they faced simply for being different. They faced various adversities, some as extreme as death,” states the movement’s official website. “As gut wrenching as the film proved to be, it also inspired the two in a new way. Both wanting to make a very clear statement that individuality is sacred, the two teamed up with Orange County photographer JB Jakubek and created what is now, The Be You Campaign.”

As part of the campaign, the sexy starlets pose with signs that say “Be You,” while offering words of encouragement. “Love yourself for who you are,” says Milian. “You are beautiful inside and out and no one can take that away from you.”

Adds Good: “Many won’t fully understand who you are because there’s never been anyone like you. You are God’s masterpiece…every one of us are. Trust your spirit and your personal relationship with God to define your essence, not other people’s opinion of who you are or ‘should be.’ Be you, this is the only way to live up to your purpose and your gift to the world.”
