11th Annual Tunnel of Oppression to Be
Offered at UW-Eau Claire

RELEASED: Nov. 4, 2005

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's 11th annual Tunnel of Oppression will take place Tuesday -Thursday, Nov. 8-10. The nationally recognized program will offer free 45-minute tours from 7 to 10 p.m. in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center.

Making Our School an Intercultural Community sponsors the interactive program to raise awareness and educate people about the different types of oppression found in today's society. Participants will be guided through settings aimed at issues of welfare, sexual assault, non-native English speakers, and living between two cultures.

"This program gives students an opportunity to experience and learn about the oppression that others live through every day," said MOSAIC's president Rachel Hawkins.

The event is open to the public and all are encouraged to tour the tunnel. New tours will start every 10 minutes. Afterwards, participants can discuss the feelings and thoughts provoked by the experience in a debriefing room.

MOSAIC is a Housing and Residence Life task force devoted to diversity education at UW-Eau Claire and in the Eau Claire community.
