Attend or sponsor one event, or let us organize an event for you to make a difference in the lives of refugees in Hong Kong.
Drink For Justice is a relaxed networking event that is held monthly to promote understanding and level differences. It builds opportunities and sheds light on social issues that affect us all.
Drink For Justice (DFJ) is social drinks with a difference. DFJ is held monthly to promote friendship across borders; develop solidarity irrespective of social, racial and religious divides; and foster business opportunities for young professionals partaking in our events. Let’s cheer together for a good cause!
DFJ is organized by a diverse network of professionals, refugees and concerned citizens who come together at the Refugee Union. DFJ is presently organized by people with a background or in professions in academia, law, accounting, trading and marketing.
Once a month, for a $250 donation, you’re welcome to enjoy a free-flow of drinks and canapes and make a difference in the lives of refugees 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 choice. DFJ encourages us to express ourselves while learning about the reality of 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.
DFJ aims to spark a truthful friendship in a jovial environment shaped around this ancient wisdom, which goes beyond drinking, to achieve balance, unity and amity.
It is our promise to provide unique and quality drinks you rarely find in free-flow events.
You may make a donation to the Refugee Union when purchasing tickets at www.evertbrite.hk. You may also make a donation at the event.
