Happy New Year from the team at Justice Centre!
As we kick off 2017 with hopes for a brighter and happier year (and possibly with some personal resolutions too), the team at Justice Centre have been thinking of our own hopes for the new year. We are reminded of the 65.3 million people who remain forcibly displaced around the world, and for whom the new year may bring fear and uncertainty in an increasingly unpredictable world. They might be vulnerable or traumatized; they might face hostility in new countries, and in languages they don’t understand; they might even be children.
Now more than ever, this reminds us of the importance of our mission to enable our clients to access their rights in Hong Kong. Through legal and psychosocial support, policy, advocacy and research, we hope to continue raising the profile of human rights and forced migrants’ rights, in Hong Kong, regionally and internationally.
We could not do any of this without your ongoing support, and hope you stay with us on this journey through 2017 and beyond. Please consider making a donation to support our lifesaving work and also check out the various opportunities we have coming up which are highlighted below, including:
Lastly, a new year comes with new beginnings and we have an exciting update - as of February, we will be moving out of our centre in Sai Ying Pun and into The Good Lab, a dynamic co-working space in Cheung Sha Wan. Although we will miss the bustling Western district, we look forward to a fresh start in a collaborative and vibrant environment! We will continue to deliver our services to our clients in a safe, welcoming and confidential space. Should you have any queries regarding our move, please do feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 3109 7359.
