'Tunnel of Oppression'
MAILED: Oct. 4, 1999|
The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Housing and Residence Life's diversity task force will present the "Tunnel of Oppression" Tuesday, Oct. 12, and Wednesday, Oct. 13.
The nationally recognized program will offer tours from 5 to 9 p.m. in the Towers Hall Social Room.
Students, staff and faculty are invited to attend the free event where participants will "walk in someone else's shoes." The program is designed to increase awareness of different types of oppression and is divided topically into sections dealing with issues of race, gender, body image, poverty, religion, sexual orientation and disabilities. Tours last about 30 minutes and will be followed by an optional debriefing session designed to be an open forum for discussion about the feelings and thoughts the experience provoked.
The Tunnel of Oppression is sponsored by Making Our School An Intercultural Community in an effort to promote diversity on campus.
