BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford office of Residence Life and Housing is sponsoring a “Tunnel of Oppression” from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, in Blaisdell Hall to educate students and the public about the various types of oppression people face.

Tunnels of Oppression are held on many college campuses throughout the United States and each is unique to its venue, explains residence life coordinator Jessica L. Taylor, who is coordinating the project along with Sierra Hairston, also a residence life coordinator, and resident advisors.

Groups will move through a tunnel on a guided tour, learning about racism, sexism, classism, etc., and end in a debriefing room. Participants will be asked how they felt going through the tunnel, and there will also be time for discussion and questions, Taylor said.

Following the debriefing, participants will be led into a “room of hope” filled with activities that can be used to express the feelings they may experience and information about ways to take action against oppression. The tour and debriefing are expected to take a half hour. Participants may stay in the room of hope as long as they like.
