6 Subtle Microaggressions That Show Up in College – And Their Simple Solutions

Microaggressions are small, subtle forms of discrimination – but they’re not too small to matter.

Marginalized people are affected by microaggressions every day, and they can make college difficult for students with marginalized identities.

This comic shows how everyday ableism, classism, and other forms of oppression show up in colleges and universities. The good news? Once we learn to recognize these, we can help make some changes – and this comic has ideas for those, too.
