MOSAIC Sponsors Annual
Tunnel of Oppression
MAILED: Oct. 19, 2001

         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.
