GLBL 130: Resistance Movements: Resources by Movement

Resources by Movement

These pages are intended to help find more specific resources as they pertain to certain movements. The resources are not exhaustive and are not a replacement for doing independent research but is designed to assist in getting started. The sections below represent categories that social justice movements tend to fall into, but please keep in mind that many movements can straddle multiple categories. For example, the Black Lives Matter movement can fall into the "Abolition, Policing and Prisoner's Rights" category as well as the "Racial, Ethnic and Religious" category. Consider the intersectionality of movements and explore the resources in multiple related categories to get the best use out of this guide.
