The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's sixth annual Tunnel of Oppression, sponsored by Making Our School An Intercultural Community, will take place Tuesday, Oct. 24, and Wednesday, Oct. 25.
The nationally recognized program will offer tours from 5 to 9 p.m. in the Towers Hall Social Rooms located in the basement of Towers Hall.
The Tunnel of Oppression hopes to raise awareness and educate people about oppression in today's society. Students, faculty and staff are invited to attend the free event where they will tour through scenes focusing on rape, disabled persons, racial discrimination and hate crimes, domestic violence, sexual orientation and body image.
Tours last about 30 minutes. Participants are welcome to stay and discuss feelings and thoughts provoked by the experience.
