EAU CLAIRE — The University
of Wisconsin-Eau Claire’s seventh annual Tunnel of Oppression, sponsored by
Making Our School An Intercultural Community, will take place Tuesday, Oct. 23,
and Wednesday, Oct. 24.
The nationally recognized program will offer free
30-minute tours from 5:30 to 9 p.m. in the Towers Hall Social Rooms located in
the basement of Towers Hall.
This interactive program seeks to educate and raise
awareness by guiding participants though various scenes of oppression and
prejudice that occur in our country. Scenes will include depictions of ethnic
racism, sexual violence, homophobia, religious intolerance, disability
discrimination, and body image prejudice.
After the tours a discussion group will process the
thoughts and feeling of participants.
MOSAIC is a Housing and Residence Life task force devoted
to diversity education at UW-Eau Claire and in the Eau Claire community.
