UW Oshkosh student volunteers build a wall in remembrance of hate crime victims who were persecuted because of their sexual orientation or gender identity as part of the Tunnel of Oppression. The student-produced program uses a guided tour to stimulate thoughts and discussions on such topics as abilities, sexual orientation, race, gender and genocide.
The hour-long program is open 7-8 p.m. Nov. 11, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and 5-7:30 p.m. Nov. 12 and 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Nov. 13. Participants should check in at Room 227C of Reeve Memorial Union, 748 Algoma Blvd. Tours start every 15 to 20 minutes.
The follow departments and organizations contributed to the project: Hmong Student Union, Rainbow Alliance for HOPE, Residence Life, United Students in Residence Halls, University Counseling Center and Women’s Center.
