“Storytelling goes beyond news. It’s about relationships. Stories are maps for those who follow after us.” 
— Safina Maulida, member of the Innovation for Change – East Asia community

Welcome! Libraries of Resistance is a repository of lessons and visions of resistance, solidarity, and inclusivity across East Asia and Southeast Asia. We strongly believe in the power of storytelling in all of our projects. By documenting and celebrating lived experiences of marginalized and minority communities, we hope these stories inspire collaborative, intersectional learning as we collectively defend, create, and expand civic space. 

You can explore the map or read the featured stories below. Or browse the different community storytelling projects:

  1. Stories of Struggle, Hope, and Inclusion
  2. Stories of the Impact of China’s BRI
  3. COVID-19 Stories from the Margins
