Tunnel of Oppression
A programming event that creates discussion about social justice, diversity, and equity in collaboration with other campus departments, and campus student organizations.The Tunnel resembles a museum and is divided into sections exploring the issues that are particularly important in today’s society. This interactive experience provides an opportunity for participants to explore multiple dimensions of oppression and their impact on society. It is designed to create a visceral reaction as individuals are confronted with the reality of the human condition through interactive and multimedia presentations.
Hip Hop for Change Conference
The Hip-Hop for Change Conference is a collaborative effort between MOSAIC, University of San Francisco, and Mills College. People from all over the Bay Area come together to use hip-hop as a liberating tool to empower, encourage, develop artistry through interactive workshops, keynote presentations, and to build community.
Diversity Advocate Intern Programs
MOSAIC works with 5 undergraduate interns to create peer education programs and events that concentrate on social justice and diversity issues.
Topics of past events include social identities, race and ethnicity, classism, activism, genderism, domestic violence prevention, as well as other topics. Programs are every Thursday from 5-7pm unless otherwise noted.
DAI’s also participate in the MOSAIC WORD! Poetry Series, a monthly spoken word series, that invites members of the SJSU community to share artistic talents with their peers.
