Come grab some drinks on Thursday, November 3rd at Brutopia (1215 Crescent St, 10 pm, come to the second floor). For just $5 (and only $2 if you come “holler” at SSMU!), you can enjoy some fantastic live music from Pat Lesyk and HAPPY HOUR SPECIALS ALL NIGHT! You’ll have an awesome time and all of your friends are going. See you there!
All funds raised on HollerDay will go towards Journalists for Human Rights’ efforts to pressure local authorities in the Congo to protect women, men and children from being raped. jhr has been working with local media in the DRC for the past three years. As a result, there has been greater media exposure and demands for accountability.
