The Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Lumberjack Cultural Association will be holding their annual Tunnel of Oppression virtually this year.
The event is an interactive museum that showcases different means of oppression through multimedia presentations. This year it will take place Monday, Nov. 2 and Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 6 p.m. via Zoom. Attendees can register online to attend.
The event will feature an introduction video, as well as activities in breakout rooms, such as hypothetical questions and a Kahoot.
“I think anyone wanting to know about different topics going on in the world that don’t really affect them should come,” Breanna Moore, president of the Lumberjack Cultural Association said. “They can learn how to be an ally and how to be supportive to other people. Every year, someone leaves learning something new, and that’s important to have. People should take the opportunity to learn something new about different cultures and ethnicities.”
The topics featured in the Tunnel of Oppression range from things people are aware of and some things students might not think about on a day-to-day basis.
"I think everyone should attend the Tunnel because it exposes you to the struggles and injustices that other groups outside of your own face every day,” Star Jackson, OMA graduate assistant said. “Some you might be aware of, but some may go unnoticed to you and being made aware hopefully makes you want to be a part of the change."
