Tunnel of Oppression is an interactive program that highlights contemporary issues of oppression in its various forms. The program is designed to introduce participants to the concepts of oppression, privilege, and power as well as educate and challenge them to think more deeply about related issues.

Participants will walk through a simulated tunnel with stations or booths throughout the path that focus on a different topic. Each station may deliver information or create an experience in various manners that stimulate your mind or even jar your emotions. At the end of the Tunnel of Oppression is the Tunnel of Hope to offer participants opportunities to explore ways to address and improve upon the presented issues of oppression.  Participants can debrief what they experienced through silent reflection or through facilitated discussion.
