Get involved with us and start a PSCORE Club! PSCORE clubs help encourage international participation in the fight for human rights in North Korea. You can determine the scope and organization of your club.
What is a PSCORE Club?
PSCORE clubs raise issues about North Korea with friends, family, neighbors, and politicians. You can independently organize campaigns, protests, petitions, and fundraising related to North Korean human rights at your own school, workplace or community. Activities will help raise awareness in your community about North Korean defectors, pressure the international community to pay more attention to human rights violations in North Korea, and help raise monetary and non-monetary contributions to provide defectors with the well-being they rightfully deserve.
Human rights abuses in North Korea tend to go unnoticed. Therefore, any action or engagement to raise awareness about human rights in North Korea is highly valuable and appreciated. We will gladly provide you with the necessary resources and support. The only things you need are your heart, inspiration and creativity to kick off your club!
Why start one?
1. Educate yourself about North and South Korea. Check our recommended list 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 interest 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! Some ideas to raise funds include collections, concerts, performances or sponsored activities. If you decide to collect outside, make sure to keep it legal and obtain the necessary licenses beforehand. Concerts and performances at your schools, universities or workplace are a great way to get those around you interested while 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.
