Cultural appropriation “…refers to a particular power dynamic in which members of a dominant culture take elements from a culture of people who have been systemically oppressed by that dominant group” (Johnson, 2015). This pamphlet contextualizes cultural appropriation, providing some common examples of the practice and its impact.
Microaggressions are “the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership” (Sue et al., 2007). This pamphlet provides more information on microaggressions and how to combat them.
This pamphlet provides some information about terminology and allyship towards the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, aromantic, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) communities. You can also download two separate pamphlets specifically focused on transgender identities and intersex identities and the issues facing these groups.
