Each part of the tour portrays a different example of how oppression impacts various under-represented groups, i.e. race, gender, social class, religion, disability, etc.

The exhibit is based off the Museum of Tolerance in L.A. SSU joins the many campuses across the nation who have constructed their own Tunnels of Oppression. This is the second year for SSU and the event organizers are looking to create an opportunity to discuss issues of oppression on the historical and campus level. Please note that this exhibit may create intense emotions and feelings in participants.

"We will make every effort to process the experience with the participants," says Crystal White, Residential Life Coordinator. "Additionally, we will be providing resources at the end of the tour."
