The Tunnel of Oppression is the Hallett Hall Diversity Program's annual campus-wide event. All are welcome to experience the Tunnel and encouraged to self-reflect on what they see and learn. We are inspiring individuals to see their privilege, recognize oppression, and become citizens of change.
This program aims to educate people on the different types of oppression that exist today. Through visual representation, we hope to demonstrate the different ways in which racism, classism, ableism, ageism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and other forms of oppression are still prevalent in our society and campus. We also hope that with this experience people are able to see their own privilege and help eliminate the cycle of oppression.
The program will take place Sunday, Mar. 3 through Tuesday, Mar. 5, Spring 2013 in the UMC Glenn Miller Ballroom. It will run for three days and is open from 2 - 9 p.m. on Sunday and 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday. There is no charge, and the event is open to the public. Participants can go through the showcase at their own pace.
