Wine Tasting for Women's Rights

SALAmanders Shawn Shih and Conor Robinson are hosting a wine tasting event at Peking Tavern in support of the Humanist Service Corps (HSC). Shawn is on HSC's advisory board, and Conor is the founder of the volunteering program.

A representative from Private Cask Imports will be on hand to pour and explain three French wines that pair nicely with the restaurant's authentic Beijing street food. The restaurant will serve free appetizers in the first hour.

The event is free but space is limited! You can reserve your seat by making a donation at fbbgive.org (add a note to your donation indicating it is for the wine tasting). Suggested minimum donation is $25. All proceeds will support HSC's efforts to stop witch-hunting and other forms of gender-based discrimination in Ghana!

You probably don't live in fear of being branded a witch. Chances are, you think of witchcraft accusations as a thing of the past - best remembered as a dark period in the history of seventeenth-century Salem. Still, you can imagine what it would be like to be blamed for a neighbor's miscarriage, a child's illness, or a bad harvest - and to be forced to flee with nothing but what you can carry to a desolate camp for other exiles like you. This is exactly what happens to elderly women in Ghana's Northern Region. Scapegoated, banished, forced to farm and fetch water well into their eighties.

By supporting HSC's work, you can do something to stop these accusations from occurring. Human rights abuses occur most commonly where people have insufficient access to education, healthcare, and jobs. That's why the Humanist Service Corps (HSC) works with grassroots organizations in Ghana to provide these basic needs and empower members of the local community.

Please visit HSC's website for more information, and join Shawn and Conor at this special event to support HSC's women's rights work in Ghana!

    Looking forward to seeing you all Wednesday evening at Peking Tavern! This is a casual event intended to allow people to drop in and step out at whatever time makes sense for them, so please don’t worry if you can’t make it right at 5 pm. I’ll be jazzed to see you whenever you can make it, and happy to answer any questions you have about the work of the Humanist Service Corps!
