Anti-Oppression: Home

This libguide provides resources to combat oppression.


This guide provides resources to those who wish to learn about and combat oppression of various kinds in our society. This is not a comprehensive guide.

Anti-oppression work does not happen alone. This guide would not be possible without Amanda Broyles, Danielle Costello, and Crystal Miller.  

If there are resources you would like to recommend for the guide or if there are resources that are problematic, please contact Robert Griggs (
