The Tunnel of Oppression is one of our most respected and mind-opening events of the month. It is an interactive tour designed to introduce participants to the concepts of oppression, privilege and power. Participants are guided through a series of scenes that aim to educate and challenge them to think more deeply about issues of opression. At the end of the tunnel, is our Room of Hope, which allows for participants to discuss their experiences and put to use their new-found knowledge in their everyday lives.
