Xpression Against Oppression is a campaign aimed at providing various platforms for marginalized people to speak to their identities and experiences. Resistance looks different based on the multitude of intersecting identities that exist. For this reason, there were diverse spaces created through events and programming for the school year, which speak to those means. There had been an Open Mic Night, a Panel Discussion on Police Brutality, a Self-Defense Class, an Open Forum on Islamophobia, Monologues (formally known as
Vagina Monologues [Trans Inclusive]), as well as the Black History Month Conference. All of these spaces were platforms which led to a medium of publication in which students and the community could engage in arts-based means of resisting systems of oppression.
