What is Drink For Justice?

Drink For Justice is a relaxed networking event to learn how refugees in Hong Kong self-represent and develop in a challenging environment, while displaying a resourcefulness and tenacity everyone can harness for greater success. Come along, enjoy a drink, and learn something new.

Who is involved?

Drink For Justice is organized by a diverse network of professionals, refugees and concerned citizens who come together at the Refugee Union to promote solidarity and develop friendship over a pressing social cause. It’s a win-win deal guaranteed to bring out smiles!

How does it work?

Once a month, for a $200 donation to the Refugee Union, you’re welcome to drink to your heart's content and make a difference in the lives of refugees in Hong Kong. We can’t fix social problems in one night, but you can use your Happy Hour for positive change!

Refugees are a marginalized minority from dozens of countries. Their skills and talents are often undermined and depreciated in a context of limited resources, opportunities and choices. Drink For Justice encourages all of us to express ourselves and to learn about the reality of seeking asylum in this city.

Why promote justice over drinks?

The ancients believed “In Vino Veritas” – in wine, truth! The Greek historian Herodotus asserts that if the Persians decided something while drunk, they made a rule to reconsider it when sober. Authors after Herodotus added that if the Persians made a decision while sober, they made a rule to reconsider it when they were drunk.

Drink for Justice aims to spark a truthful friendship in a jovial environment shaped around this ancient wisdom since, “what soberness conceals, drunkenness reveals”. Let’s harness the good times we share with our friends to promote justice and solidarity!
