What is the Tunnel of Oppression?
The Tunnel of Oppression attempts to illuminate controversial barriers/scenarios that divide those who do not understand oppression and those who live it every day. Pulling from history, current national and local events, and the life stories of our community, the Tunnel of Oppression is an interactive, immersive and in-your-face program built around a series of student-actor performed skits covering topics that range from poverty, sexual assault, depression and suicide, racial and cultural tensions (#BlackLivesMatter), LGBTQAI issues, gender roles, bystander roles, body image, bullying and violence, and substance usage and abuse. At its core, the Tunnel of Oppression is a social justice program that hopes to inspire activism, understanding, support and change. The Tunnel of Oppression experience takes approximately one hour for the walk-through and following discussion. At this time we can only open this event up to current Rutgers-Camden students, faculty and staff. Tunnel is an adult experience, with deep discussion following; As such, children will not be permitted entrance.
