Are you interested in human rights activism? Do you have skills or talents that you can contribute in your spare time or on an ad-hoc basis? Justice Centre’s Ambassadors Network offers our supporters the opportunity to get more involved in our work on an ad hoc basis.
The network is formed by like-minded and passionate individuals who are committed to take action and support Justice Centre in raising awareness of issues faced by forced migrants in Hong Kong. Members of the network work closely with Justice Centre staff and core volunteers to engage with our work, such as translating advocacy materials, assisting with campaigns and public awareness initiatives, delivering school talks and supporting fundraising events. The Ambassadors also help identify new opportunities and devise creative methods of engaging the Hong Kong public.
Training is be provided and talents and skills of all kinds are greatly valued, whether it’s graphic design, public speaking, community work, or even as simple as the ability to communicate in Cantonese!
The course of justice is never smooth, but you can be the bridge.
