MicroReport app icon


MicroReport allows students to anonymously report microaggressions they've experienced on the UC Santa Cruz campus. Users can also view the reports submitted by other anonymous users on a map, and also in list form. In addition, information is provided in the app related to the definition of a microaggression and also a list of resources available. Microaggressions are subtle slights and indignities based on an identity like race, gender, or sexual orientation. This app provides a way for individuals to better cope with and understand microaggressions.
