Tunnel of Oppression is an interactive event that highlights contemporary issues of oppression.  It is designed to introduce participants to the concepts of oppression, privilege, and power.  Participants are guided through a series of scenes that aim to educate and challenge them to think more deeply about issues of oppression.  At the end of the tour, participants are provided with the opportunity to discuss their experiences with each other.  Facilitators help participants reflect on their experiences and put their new-found knowledge to use in their everyday lives.  Before leaving participants are given the opportunities for involvement.  Don't miss this phenomenal presentation.
