Involve with us and start a PSCORE Club! You will bring encouragement and increase the international participation in the fight for Human rights in North Korea through this club. Only you set the limit where and how you want this club to be organized!
What is a PSCORE Club?
The purpose behind a PSCORE Club is to bring up the North Korean issue with friends, family, neighbors, and politicians. You can independently organize campaigns, protests, petitions, and fundraising related to North Korean people’s rights at your own school, workplace or community. The activities you arrange will help raising awareness in your community about North Korean defectors’ situation and put the international community under pressure to pay more attention to the violations of Human Rights taking place in North Korea, and further on gather monetary and non-monetary donations to help provide defectors with the well-being they rightfully deserve.
These human rights issues that occurs in North Korea, unfortunately, tend to fall into oblivion and not be prioritized in today’s society. That is why any action or engagement with the Human rights issue in North Korea is highly valuable and appreciated. We will gladly provide you with the material and support; the only things you need is your heart, inspiration and creativity to kick on your club right where you live!
Why start one?
1. Educate yourself on North and South Korea. Check our recommendations of books, movies and journals for inspiration!
2. Contact the person in charge of club membership at your school/university/local club and learn about what steps you need to take to be recognized as an official club (this status often offers you certain privileges like use of photocopiers, space and sometimes even a monetary budget!).
3. Create a plan. What type of projects would you like to start? Are you interested in holding campaigns, fundraising or writing letters? Choose activities that interests you and your group and pursue that goal!
4. Promote! Get the word out about the exciting opportunity to become part of a positive change.
Have fun and do good! Brainstorm fun ideas on raising funds whether it is collections, concerts, performances or sponsored activities, and plan it carefully. If you decide to collect outside, make sure to keep it legal and get the necessary licenses beforehand. Concerts and performances at your schools, universities or workplace are a great way to get those around you interested whilst sharing your talent. Sponsored activities are easy to organize, and you can get your friends and family involved to help you out. It can be as simple as a sponsored silence, or as daring as a sponsored bungee-jumping.
