Tunnel of Oppression

The Lumberjack Cultural Association (LCA) and the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) present the Tunnel of Oppression. The Tunnel of Oppression is an interactive museum which spotlights different types of oppression through interactive theatre and multimedia presentations. In the past the event has shed light on issues ranging from human trafficking, genocide and suicide to name a few. The Tunnel of Oppression is a very enlightening and eye-opening experience that should not be missed.
