This month the spotlight will shine on making friends across boundaries, celebrating the diversity of genders and sexualities in our society, while raising important questions that might challenge our understandings: Why do we need gender labels? Are gender and sexual identities a source of empowerment or an obstacle to equality and solidarity? What resources are available to the most marginalized?Learn more about our purpose
Drink For Justice is a relaxed networking opportunity to learn how refugees self-represent and develop in a challenging environment while displaying a resourcefulness and tenacity we can all harness for greater success.
Drink For Justice is a relaxed networking event that is held monthly to shed light on social issues that affect us all. We learn from 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.
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!
Once a month, for a $200 donation, you’re welcome to drink to your heart's content and make a difference in the lives of underprivileged people in Hong Kong. We can’t fix social problems in one night, but we can turn our Happy Hour into 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 while discussing broader issues of social justice.
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!
