What is Tunnel of Oppression?

Tunnel of Oppression is a 60 minute diversity experience; a guided tour designed to raise awareness of local and global oppressive actions and conditions. Participants will explore topics such as queerphobia, street harassment, sex trafficking, child labor, genocide, hunger and homelessness, and global sanitation.
