The Tunnel of Oppression is a student written, acted, and directed theatrical performance comprised of 11 short performances that center on issues of oppression and social justice such as transgender identity reclamation, mental health stigmas, incarceration rates of black men, drone use, sex trafficking, and body image.

Each interactive tour is followed by a de-briefing session, for students to discuss what they have just experienced, and how they can make a difference. A counselor will be available throughout the event.
